Welcome to Gold class!
Gold Class is a Reception class of up to 30 pupils. Our teachers are Mrs Kamanyire and Mrs Moss and our Teaching Assistant is Chara.
Our new topic this term is all about what people celebrate around the world and how people celebrate.
We have commenced our daily phonics session and we are progressing through Phase 2 of Letters and Sounds. We have also started our guided reading sessions and the children will start bringing home books to read with you and to you. Please try to attend the Early Years Curriculum Workshop held on Thursday 9th November to find out more about how we teach phonics, reading and maths and how you can support your child at home.
We continue to use our amazing outdoor space, even in the cold and sometimes wet weather. This mean we are changing into our welly boots every day. Please make sure that children have all weather wear in school and wear sensible shoes that are easily changed independently.
Wednesday is usually our PE day, however we ask that children have a PE Kit in school every day, just in case schedules change. We still have PE outside so please make sure children have complete PE kits for outdoors as well.
Elvis the Elephant is a very important member of Gold Class. He visits the children at weekends and records his adventures in a diary. Elvis loves sharing and reading books. Please read your favourite book to Elvis and tell us about it on Monday when he returns to school.
