Welcome to Dormice Class!

Dormice is where our wonderful Reception and Year 1 children learn.

We are a mixed age class of Reception/Year 1. We are taught by our class teacher Mrs Begum and our teaching assistants Mrs Green, Mrs Sillett, Mrs Sheppard and Mrs Dawson.

Our learning takes place through play, practical and enquiry-based activities, as well as whole and small group teaching sessions. We have continuous use of our indoor and outdoor environments and enjoy accessing a range of activities including forest schools.

We love learning in our classroom and would like to share some of the things we have been investigating and exploring so far. Have a look at our photographs and see pictures of our amazing work and activities.

Our curriculum map

We are currently creating a brand new curriculum that will be bespoke to our wonderful school – our full curriculum map will be published when this work has been complete. 

For the Autumn 2 half term we are learning:-

Our reception children- continue to follow their own individual objectives, linked to the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. 

Our Year 1 children explore the same overall themes and topics as our reception children, whilst following the national curriculum and details of their learning in each subject can be found below.

English:-We will be continuing to use a range of exciting stimuli, linking in to our class topic, to teach Literacy in Reception and Year 1. These include books, film clips, artefacts, and real-life experiences.

Maths:-We will be continuing to follow the maths national curriculum, based around our own adapted version of the White Rose Maths scheme of learning.

Topic and the wider curriculum:- Our topic this half term is festivals. This includes the following subject elements:- Halloween, Fireworks, Remembrance Day, Diwali, Christmas
