Welcome to Joy Class! This term our topic is called 'Beside the Seaside'

We are Year 1s and our teachers are Mrs Magson and Mrs Kelsey

Term 6 Summer 2021

This term we are off to the seaside for our learning!

Our philosophy of learning in Year 1

In year one we passionately believe that young children learn best through play and exploration. Wherever possible we offer children the opportunity to experience real life events that are linked to their learning.  Every day our children get the opportunity to be an artist, writer, mathematician, scientist, designer or a storyteller to name but a few! These play-based experiences enable the children to consolidate their skills, knowledge and understanding and enable them to be become independent and resilient learners. Throughout the environment, both inside and outside, you will see busy children actively engaged in a wide range of activities that they themselves have chosen. Continuous provision supports and encourages our children and staff to have a lifelong love of learning. 

In Joy class the children have daily opportunities to use continuous provision to enhance their learning and to develop their own ideas and interests.  Opportunities are carefully planned to ensure progression from Early Years to Year 1.

The children are introduced to weekly challenges where they can independently apply skills which have previously been taught.  This allows children to demonstrate their understanding which in turn allows staff to plan the next steps in the children's learning journey.  Within each phase the children are able to free flow between the classroom and the outside area to ensure access to all areas of provision.

This term we are continuing to think how to use our COOL time well so that we can show an adult we are making the ,most of these opportunities. COOL time stands for 'continue our own learning' and we have ample time to practice these skills.

We are also developing our challenge time so that we will complete three challenges independently each week. An adult will also check that we are completing our challenges.

Reading

Weekly Reading 

Please try to hear your child read at home 3 times a week and record this in their blue diary. Books will be changed weekly. Your child should read their book at least 3 times: the first time for decoding, second time for fluency and lastly for comprehension.

Adults: remember to ask questions about the text both as you go along and at the end. Ask your child to think of a different ending or predict what might happen when the story is over. Talk about the setting, characters, meaning of new words and enjoyment of the story.

Big Cat Collins ebooks

In addition your child should has a log in for the ebooks which will give them access to a selection of books allocated to them. These books match their current phonic level and are decodable. Please see letter below for further clarification.
