May Hill

May Hill Class comprises of Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children, aged 4-7. This year (2018/19) there are twenty two children in the class and they are taught by Mrs Tyler (class teacher), Mrs Connelly (teaching assistant) and Mrs Lynne Heron (teaching assistant).

The younger children (Reception) follow the national Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum which covers seven areas of learning:-

-Communication and language

-Physical development

-Personal, social and emotional development

-Literacy

-Mathematics

-Understanding the world

-Expressive art and design

The curriculum is very play based with the children taking a lead in their learning, supported by the adults. They are encouraged to use a wide range of resources in both the inside and outside areas. Continuous assessment enables the staff to judge when the children are ready for more formal learning.

In Years 1 and 2 the children follow the National Curriculum through termly topics which enable the development of skills and the acquisition of knowledge in a stimulating, creative and fun way.

May Hill classroom will be crawling with creatures great and small in terms 1 and 2 as our topic is Paws, Claws and Jaws. Watch out for the spider webs in the corridor, enjoy a story in our 'under the sea' book corner or lend a helping hand in the vet's surgery. In science we will be going on a mini beast safari and classifying animals. We will visit the Birds of Prey Centre and welcome some very special visitors to the classroom. In english we will be making posters and writing poems and riddles.We will be going on a Bear Hunt and writing our own version. In maths we will be measuring, weighing and making patterns as well as using ICT to record information. There will be lots of painting, printing and sewing animals in art and continuing to work on our whole school centenary poppy project.

Don't forget to look at the photos on the topic board in the corridor to see how busy we've been.
