This year we are known as Pebbles Class!
Ms Harwood is the class teacher supported by Mrs Cooke and sometimes Mrs Foster. A young child’s day in Pebbles class is made up of many different elements: talking and listening, reading and writing activities, stories and poetry, art and craft, developing mathematical and scientific skills and knowledge, religious education, P.E. and music. This learning is linked closely to our big question of the term (see Curriculum: Questioning Curriculum).
The security offered by the firm yet happy setting of Pebbles class enables the children’s educational foundations to be nurtured and to flourish. The Year 1 children in the setting are slowly introduced to more formalised experiences whilst still benefiting from many aspects of the early years approach to learning. In Pebbles class the children are happy, confident and motivated to learn in a positive and engaging atmosphere.
Listening, learning and loving it!
