Our Teachers

Our Teaching Assistants

Mrs Scotney is our class teacher. She loves making our learning fun and exciting! We also have two special friends in our class called Mr Parrot and Rosie. They help us with our learning but can sometimes cause mischief in our classroom! Mrs Scotney loves singing and dancing with us during our wake and shake sessions (although her singing isn't that great!) Her favourite author is Julia Donaldson and she has LOTS of her books which she enjoys reading to us.

In our focused EAD sessions the F2 children will practise a range of joining skills in prepartion for makig their own boat that they will then test in our outdoor water area to see if it floats. The Year 1 children will use their Design and Technology skills to creat a lighthouse.

We will write a list of what we would need to pack in our suitcase if we were going on holiday. We will be creating some giant seaside pictures in the hall and using our phonics skills to label them. The children will also be writing a postcard to send to someone special! Finally, we will be designing and making an ice cream surprise.  In our daily phonics sessions, F2 children will be recapping Basics 3 letter sounds and how to blend and segment these sounds in words to read and write. The Year 1 children will be continuing Basics 5 where they will learn alternative letter sounds. 

We take a mastery approach to maths. Focusing on a number over 2 weeks to gain an in-depth knowledge & understanding of each number. We will be counting, recognising and ordering these numbers. We will be learning how to partition the numbers to help us to add and subtract them using a range of resources such as 10s frames, part-part whole templates and numicon to help us. We will also be measuring weight and learning how to double and half numbers and talking about the names and properties of 3D shapes. The year 1s will continue to focus on place value to 100, addition and subtraction of two digit numbers and recapping counting in multiples of 2s, 5s and 10s. They will also be learning to multiply and divide numbers using a range of strategies.

We will look at what the features of the animals are in each group. The children will also learn about animal life cycles with a focus on the life cycle of the frog. We will hopefully be looking after some tadpoles so that we can watch and observe closely to see the changes that occur over time.  The F2 children will be focusing on sea creatures looking what features help them to adapt to their different environments. They will also be investigating floating and sinking. All the children will visit Vicar water to take part in some pond dipping.
