Primary School

Wren (R)

Welcome to Wren Class!

Welcome to Wren Class, your Class Teachers are Mrs Taylor , Mrs Pugh and Mrs Harrison  We have two Teaching Assistants working with us, Mrs Wild and Mrs Gibbons.

 

In our class we learn through play and exploration. Children will have a range of activities set up for them that they can explore throughout the day both inside and outside. There is lots of time to build relationships with our friends as we climb, build, create and talk together.  We practise our letters and sounds each day as we learn to read and write using the 'Read Write Inc' phonics programme.  We also explore numbers, counting and patterns each day, learning new things that we can then use in our play and activities.

 

Each day you need to bring a water bottle, a suitable coat and a bookbag to school. It is helpful for your child to have a spare change of clothes and a pair of wellington boots kept in school at all times. 

 

Wren Class Welcome Meeting Presentation

Topic Overview Term 1

Week Beginning 26th September

 

This week we have continued learning about 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff', we created a story map together and then used this to retell the story to our talk partner. We then moved on to thinking about the troll from the story, we looked at some pictures of trolls and described what we could see. Then we worked in groups to create our own troll. We told our teacher what to draw by describing the trolls features e.g. "he has a long pointy red nose, his skin is orange, he has a big fat tummy!"

 

In maths we have moved on to learning about number 2. We watched some Numberblocks and practised making 2 from "1 and another 1". We looked at a 1p coin and talked about the idea of having money to pay for things. We set up a shoe shop role play area and practised paying for shoes costing 1p and 2p. We then moved onto sorting pictures into 1 and 2. This created a lot of good discussions e.g. "the cake has 2 candles but is only 1 cake, the bike has 2 wheels but is 1 bike".

 

In our Read Write Inc. sessions this week we have learnt o,c,k,u,b. Don't forget to practise these in your phonics folder.

Week Beginning 20th September

 

This week we have begun learning about the story of 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff'. First we read the story and talked about the characters, then we made our own puppets and used them to retell the story. We have been building bridges in our outside area and taking turns to be the troll and the goats to act out the story. 

 

In Maths this week we have begun our first block of learning about 0,1 and 2. We have practised forming the numbers 0 and 1 in the air, in sand, on large pieces of paper and on whiteboards. The rhymes we use to help us form the numbers can be found as a link below. We have sorted objects using the criteria 'one' and 'not 1' and had a few heated debates about whether a bus is '1' as there is one of it, or 'more than 1' as it s has 2 doors and 4 wheels. I wonder if you can do some sorting with objects at home?

 

In our Read Write Inc. sessions this week we have learnt i,n,p,g. Don't forget to find these sounds in your phonics folders and have a go at recognising the and forming these letters.

About your Class Teachers

 

Hello, my name is Mrs Taylor and I teach in Wren Class.  I joined CPS last year and am really enjoying working with all the children! Prior to working at CPS I taught for 13 years at a Primary school in Oxford. I have two young children, both boys, 2 and 5. My 5 year old is also in Reception. I have 1 ginger Persian cat and a rabbit, who used to live at my previous school in my classroom! I love to sing and will make up songs and rhymes about anything. As a family we love exploring the outdoors and finding new walks in our local area.

 

Hello! My name is Mrs Harrison and I am one of the teachers in Wren Class.  I have been working at CPS for many years and love the school because there is a fantastic team spirit.  CPS is a really special place to work as I love the enthusiasm and energy of the children who come to our school. 

I have 3 children at home and a tabby cat called Pippin. I like going on long walks and getting outside as much as possible. I love visiting different places and getting to the seaside as often as I can!

 

Hello I’m Mrs Pugh and am another teacher in Wren Class.  I have been teaching at CPS for a number of years and absolutely love it!  I have 3 children at home and a cat called Poppadom.  I love singing and playing the guitar and piano.  I take part in amateur dramatic productions and am a huge musicals fan!  I also enjoy playing games with my family and going for walks in the countryside.

50 Things to do before you are 5!

 

50 Things To Do aims to provide inspiration for parents and carers to connect with children through a range of activities, all designed to have a positive impact on learning and health.

 

50 Things provides a local offer to families, guiding them to places to visit, and fun things to do on their doorstep. They'll be shown how to make best use of their local libraries, museums, parks and wild spaces - helping to promote community cohesion at the same time.

Presented and packaged through a mobile app means it is easy to get started and conveniently available whenever the moment arises for a new activity.
