Class 1

Welcome to Class 1.

In Class 1, we aim to support our children to have a fluid transition and make a fantastic start to their primary school journey at Beer. We have lots of fun, both in our classroom and outdoor space, by learning through play and acquiring the key skills of reading and writing in our daily phonic sessions.  We then nurture this through a love of books and reading, practising the physical skills and use of phonics needed to become a writer. We use hands-on activities to develop our Maths skills and explore other areas of learning through observation and investigation. We have opportunities to use our imaginations and be creative by exploring our own interests and through teacher directed activities.

We work closely with Class 2, as year 1 are split between the two classes, and we come together at specific times of the day and flow between the classrooms to explore our learning. Year 1 have the extra challenge of completing specific ‘jobs to do’ whilst continuing to follow their own ideas, which we have encouraged from the start. “I like doing ‘jobs to do’; I like to be busy.’” Grace, year 1. We encourage independence and ‘having a go’ whilst also working together and respecting each other, so we can all learn with the support of our friends.
