Welcome to Early Years at St Mary and St John Catholic Primary School.
Mrs Woods is the class teacher and Mrs Rigby is the class teaching assistant.
We hope you find the following information useful, please pop in to school any time if you have any questions.
Here are a few details about our class:
- PE day is Thursday – please ensure that your child keeps their kit in school. We will send their PE bags home at half term to be washed during the holidays.
- One to One reading is timetabled on Fridays – Please ensure that your child’s books and diary remain in their bag each day as this session is subject to change, depending on school activities.
- Phonics information will be sent home each week to support any work at home. Please just pop into school if you have any questions.
To begin the Autumn term, our topic is 'Marvellous Me'. This allows us to get to know the children and supports them with settling in to school. The children love to share their likes, dislikes and opinions while also getting to know school staff a little better! The specific details may change according to the children's interests.
The topic web below shows some details for the different areas of learning.
Our Spring 'Food' topic often leads to questions from the children regarding how different foods are grown. We held a 'child initiated planning session' where the children asked a variety of questions regarding the growth of foods and linked these enquiries to a variety of fiction and non-fiction texts. and then tied in the learning outcomes for Reception. Reading ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ will then lead us into investigating mini- beasts; which is often a fascination of young children and provides lots of opportunities for learning.
