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 along with  Miss Lynch.

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 3

Would you like to live in a castle?


This term we will be exploring castles and people who might live in them from the past, present and our imaginations. During English we will be acting out traditional tales and learning to write our own fairy tale style stories based in fantasy castles. Art this term will concentrate on learning about collage working as a whole class to create a large scale castle collage as well as independent collage projects. Science this term will give us an opportunity to discover more about the seasons and different types of weather. We will work scientifically making weather observations and finding ways to record our findings. Maths this term will continue to build on our growing addition, subtraction and place value knowledge.

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.
