Aqua Class (Reception and Year 1)

Welcome to Aqua Class!


Hello and Welcome from everyone in Aqua Class.

We are a happy and excited class of mixed Reception and Year 1  children who enjoy exploring the environment in our lovely village setting, our teacher is Mrs Gould who supports and guides our learning.

We have a lovely outdoor classroom area with a canopy, soft play surface, mud kitchen and play house.  This helps make our learning very exciting as we can have fun whatever the weather.  We always have our wellingtons and raincoats in school so that we can go for walks, collecting leaves, being park detectives, exploring the village, bug hunting, bird watching, treasure hunts and maths trails whatever the weather. 

To support the children we have developed a Creative Curriculum which is play based, hands on learning and helps to develop creative and independent thinking skills.

Term 1

Our Brilliant Bodies!

What makes me special?


The children will find out about the 5 senses and which part of the body each sense is associated with.
They will explore each sense and how it helps them with everyday life before investigating what it is like when a sense is impaired and how that affects their ability to navigate the classroom. 


We will have lots of arty fun during the term; creating faces from collage, paint and even food!


Term 1 will be a fun filled start to the year!








We ask that your child reads to you every night and you practice their tricky words and phonics which are updated weekly.



Further to reading every night and practicing your phonics and tricky words, the Year One children are given spellings that are sent home every Friday and will be tested on the following Friday.
