Sparrows Class

Sparrows class is our class for Year 1 and Year 2 children.

The class is taught by Mrs Hodgkins every morning and on Monday and Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.  On Wednesday afternoons the class have PE and on Friday afternoons the class is taught by Mrs Canning.    Mrs Potter and Mrs Baylie are the teaching assistants in Sparrows Class.

Each term the children have a focus topic to develop their learning.  More information on the curriculum can be found under the Learning tab.

There is an outdoor play area which is used by the children in Ducklings and Sparrows class.  Learning activities are set up here to further develop children's curiosity, learning and physical skills.

On Monday mornings and Wednesday afternoons, children in Ducklings and Sparrows class are taught PE by specialist sports coaches with the support of our teaching assistants.  Indoor PE (Dance and Gym) takes place on Monday mornings, with outdoor PE (games or athletics) on Wednesday afternoons (though this sometimes comes indoors if it is too cold or wet!).

The children in Sparrows class work hard on their phonic work through daily phonic sessions.  The children are encouraged to read to an adult at school regularly and also at home.

We are fortunate to have regular parent support in the class.  If you are able to offer some time to play games or listen to children read, please see Mrs Hodgkins.
