Skylark

 

Welcome to Skylark Class!

We have twelve lovely children in Skylark class from Reception to Year 2. Our teacher is Miss Stobbart and our teaching assistant is Mrs Priddin.

 

We have continuous access to a wide range of resources in our well-stocked classroom and outdoor area where we can be creative and take ownership of our own learning. On any day, you can find us being designers and builders in our construction and workshop areas, artists in our studio, scientists in our investigation area, musicians and dancers on our stage, paleontologists in our digging zone, authors and storytellers in our reading jungle, chefs in our cookery area, problem-solving mathematicians and much more! We also love to learn through daily focus groups with the adults in the class and complete challenges throughout the week to consolidate our learning.

Things to remember for this year:

 

Reading books:

Children are expected to read to an adult at home on a daily basis and phonics reading books are changed once a week on a Friday at school so please remember to bring book bags in every day. Children will have a phonetically decodable reading book to support their Phonic learning, matched to the phase they are working at. Once this has been read, it should be re-read until the end of the week to achieve fluency. Additionally, children will bring home a reading book for fun to share with you at home. Our children who are free readers will be supported to choose an age-appropriate book at their level to read at home.

 

PE and Forest School: 

PE is on Wednesdays and Fridays.  On a Friday, children need to come to school in their PE kits and bring their school uniform with them in a bag. It is also useful if children have wellies and waterproofs available in school at all times so that they are able to access our wonderful outdoor area come rain or shine! Skylark class have Forest School on the first two Thursdays of every term and will need to bring kit (clothes they can get muddy) with them on these two days.
