Welcome to Skylark Class!
We have 11 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, palaeontologists 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.
Year 1/2 Knowledge Organisers:
Things to remember for this year:
Children are expected to read to an adult at home on a daily basis and reading books are changed daily at school so please remember to bring book bags in every day. All children will have a phonetically decodable reading book to support their Phonic learning, matched to the phase they are working at. Additionally, children will bring home a reading book for fun, which has captured their eye in our Reading Jungle, to share with you at home.
PE is on Wednesdays. Please make sure that full P.E kits are available in school all week. 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!
‘Show and Tell’: All children can bring in something to talk about every Friday. This can be anything which captures the child’s interest and sparks conversation, but ideally not a toy.
These are some websites we use with the children so they will be familiar with most. They especially enjoy singing the number songs!
Ordering and sequencing numbers-
Crickweb has lots of different games suitable for early years.
