Hello! I am the class 1 teacher. Prior to teaching class 1, I had the pleasure of teaching years 2 and 3 at Cartmel and a year 3 class in Camden, London. Teaching is a true vocation for me and I love planning activities to excite and motivate my class. In addition to my teaching responsibilities I am the subject leader for: Literacy, History and Geography.

Hello! I teach class 1 on Wednesdays and Thursdays. I have previously been a supply teacher and taught at a school in Barrow-in-Furness. I love teaching PE, geography and allowing the children to have hands on learning opportunities outdoors such as in Forest Schools.

There are no blog items to display

Welcome to our class page! The children in the Busy Bee class are taught in different ways throughout the day. There are focus group activities, whole class activities and self-initiated activities. At the beginning of each term we set off with a topic in mind, but we are flexible in our approach and shape our planning to match the interests of the children within our class.

Please find details of our planned activities for the upcoming term below.

Autumn Term 2018

In the first half of this term our topic will be: Ourselves.

We will divide this topic into weekly sub-topics: My family, My body, My health, My hopes and dreams, My Senses and My likes and dislikes. Through the teaching of this topic the following curriculum areas will be covered:

English: writing: lists, poems, stories with familiar settings and letters. We will use a variety of texts to complement our topic learning including Funny Bones.

Maths: developing skills in number, shape and measure by measuring our heights, weights and making pictograms of likes and dislikes.

Science: learning about the human body, how to keep healthy and the senses.

Design and Technology: creating mobiles and dream catchers.

History: learning about famous nurses from the past.

PSHE: learning about rules and expectations and how to look after ourselves and those around us.

Art: learning how to use different mediums to create skeletons and using body parts to print.

ICT: labelling diagrams by selecting, dragging, dropping and typing.

In PE children will be learning how to play some team and chasing games. They will practise moving in different ways and getting into spaces.

In RE children will be learning some of the stories taught by Jesus.                                                                                 

‚ÄčPhonics and Spellings

Children in Reception, Year 1 have a daily phonics session each morning where they practise sounds already taught and learn new phonemes and graphemes through Letters and Sounds.

Reading

Our reading books are banded into different colours. Children are heard reading at least twice a week within school, either 1:1 with their own book or as part of a guided session. Children also take part in headstart reading comprehension activities and share their books with a book buddy. Please can children try and read every day at home as this helps to improve blending, comprehension, grammar and spelling and most importantly helps to develop a life long love of reading for pleasure. 

After the half term holidays our topic will be Journeys. Planning for this topic will be shaped by children’s interest but we anticipate finding out about the journeys made by animals in the natural world, the journey made by Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem, children’s journeys to school and Santa’s journey around the world. We will also make our own journeys around Cartmel to make discoveries about our local area. A trip has been provisionally booked to watch The Snail and the Whale, at The Forum in Barrow.
