Welcome to Owls
In our wonderful classroom, we learn as a mixed age class of Reception, Year 1 and 2 children. Our learning is organised as follows:
Registration- we are all welcomed together at the start of the morning and afternoon.
Direct Teaching- our teacher and teaching assistants work with us as a whole class to share stories and rhymes and also in smaller groups to learn new skills appropriate to our age. For example, new maths skills will be taught to us in small groups within the class throughout the week.
Focus groups- we are all grouped to help us apply our skills during the week and whether we are in Reception or Year 2, we will take part in these groups each day to apply our learning and practise skills.
Continuous provision - this is time when Reception children choose freely from the available resources, planning their own activities and developing their social interactions. During this time, Year 1 and 2 children, select from tasks set for them across all areas of learning, reinforcing and applying taught skills.
This provision enables our teachers and teaching assistants to know us really well and tailor learning to our individual needs.
