Class 1 are part of the Junior Department. Our class is made up of 7 pupils, 2 girls and 5 boys.
Class 1 is a welcoming environment where the children are encouraged to work hard, and to have fun learning in a stimulating and structured environment.
We enjoy learning through play, and have opportunities to engage in Structured Play activities both inside and outside on a daily basis. We also play table top activities in the morning. We learn on a one to one basis at Teacher Table as well as developing our social skills when we sit around the table to eat at Break Time.
The children in Class 1 also love to attend the Hydro. Pool and the Ball Pool weekly. We have joint P.E lessons twice a week, and attend the school Library weekly. We always look forward to our Jo Jingles lessons once a month when we have great fun singing, dancing and making Music with Jo and Jennifer. We enjoy relaxing to the Music with the sensory I.C.T equipment on a weekly basis. We have recently started to complete the Golden Mile daily in school, and the boys and girls love to go outside in the fresh air.
Some of our topics this term include ‘All Dressed Up’ and ‘Let’s Get Together’. We have had great fun dressing up and role playing doctors, nurses, vets and many other people during Structured Play.
We have enjoyed completing some lovely Autumn themed Art work, to include a lovely wall display of the season, and recently designed our odd socks for anti-bullying week.
We were delighted when the local Fire Service dropped in to see us recently, and allowed us to climb aboard their wonderful Fire Engine and try on their firefighter uniforms.
We recognise that each one of our pupils are unique, special and valued. As such, each child has an I.E.P (Individualized Education Plan) that is assessed every six weeks, both to ensure progress and to ensure that the individual needs of the pupils are met.
We endeavour to embrace the six principles of nurture at all times in Class 1, and in particular that our classroom is a “safe base for our pupils” where they can fulfil their potential.
