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 1 2017

This term our topic is entitled Me, myself and I. Our main priority is to ensure that the children settle into school as quickly as possible and familiarise themselves with the class rules and routines. Once the baseline assessments have been carried out and the children are in class full-time, we can begin our topic work and start our phonics. Our topic work will focus on ourselves, our family and friends, we will also be exploring our bodies and our senses. We will also be identifying some of the different emotions we feel and identifying what makes us special. Teacher led activities and directed tasks linked to our topic will take place in the morning with a greater emphasis on child initiated learning taking place in the afternoon sessions.
