Aqua Class (EYFS and Year 1)
Welcome to Aqua Class!
Our class teacher is Mrs Gould who is supported by Mrs Davis (teaching RE and Music) and Mrs Wingrove who is our class TA.
We are a mixed age group class with both Reception and Year 1 children. We have a play based curriculum that encourages independence alongside cooperative learning. We have well resourced indoor and outdoor classroom provision that children are encouraged to take ownership and therefore responsibility for.
This term we will be learning about being respectful to others and the environment around us.
We will start the term looking at seasonal changes and building up our understanding of autumn. This will be an ongoing theme throughout the year to help the children notice how the changes to the seasons alter our everyday life.
Our main topic will be 'Multum in Parvo'- Where do I live?where we will be building on what we have found out about ourselves in Term 1 by thinking about where we live and how it has changed overtime. Building on this further the children will continue to grow an understanding of themselves and where they belong by thinking about the wider community. We will begin to develop map skills be taking walks around the beautiful village of Exton and discover the historical features at our doorstep. Leading us to discover how Rutland Water, the biggest attraction in or county, used to look and why it was changed.
Our rainbow challenges will continue to be linked to all our learning and provide the children with an opportunity to consolidate and revisit the new ideas.
