Welcome to Class 1
The Early Years class is taught by Mrs Porter and Miss Fitzpatrick
1:1 Support Staff- Miss Lewis and Mrs Oakes
A very warm welcome to Class 1!
Our Early Years Class is taught by Mrs Porter (Monday- Wednesday) and Miss Fitzpatrick (Thursday- Friday). We also have Mrs Oakes and Miss Lewis in our classroom, who support the learning on a 1:1 basis with two of our children. We aspire to create a happy, safe and fun learning environment where our children are encouraged to develop their imagination, curiosity and sense of self. We whole-heartedly believe in creating a space which promotes children to develop a love of learning that will continue with them throughout their journey at St John’s Catholic Primary School. We have created our bespoke curriculum centered around the 7 areas of learning and adapt this according to Class 1’s interests.
A note to parents
Here are just a few reminders -
- Please credit your child's account with £1 for the week to pay for toast. If you prefer, your child can have a piece of fruit instead. There is no charge for fruit.
- PE will take place on a Tuesday morning, please make sure your child has a PE kit in school. All items of clothing must be labelled.
- Please make sure that your child is bringing their own water bottle to school, preferably with a name label on it.
- Children will be able to change their library book once a week and will be given home reading books once we have a built confidence using a collection of sounds.
Here is a list of useful websites with fun activities to support your child's learning. I have also included the link to Tapestry Online Journal. On Tapestry you can upload your own observations and activities for me to see your child's learning at home and when the children come back to school, I will continue to provide uploads to show the fun and learning that goes on in the classroom.
