Unicorn Class

Our Reception children are taught in Unicorn Class by Mrs Breydin, Mrs Gardner ( PPA Cover ), Mrs Waters (T.A Mon-Wed ) and Mrs Saint (T.A -Thur & Fri).

We work hard to ensure that the children are F.A.B.

Feel: happy, secure, and loved.

Are: excited and enthusiastic about their learning.

Become: independent and confident learners.

Jewel was a noble creamy-white unicorn with a ice blue horn, and was the best friend of Narnian King Tirian. He often wore a gold chain around his neck. You can read about Jewel in the book, 'The Last Battle'.


What children say about the class:

I liked the fun toys and activities.

I liked sitting on the carpet listening to Mrs Breydin.

I liked the role play area.


Term 2:

This term our topic is entited Once upon a time and our main text will be Goldilocks and the three bears. During literacy sessions we will be looking at different versions of the story, doing shared reading using a big book of the story, creating story maps and we will turn our role play area into the three bears cottage so the children can retell the story using story props. After our recent teacher training day, I am making changes to the way I deliver Maths sessions. We will be focusing on a number a week and throughout that time the children will be able to explore making and forming that number throughout different areas inside and outside the classroom. This term we will be focusing on numbers 1 - 5. Due to particular events, children will be doing firework pictures and painting poppies and as we are approaching Christmas, we will be starting to learn songs for our nativity play. It will be a busy but hopefully a most enjoyable term!!
