May Hill

May Hill Class comprises of Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children, aged 4-7. This year (2019/20) 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.

We'll be licking our lips in May Hill class in terms 1 and 2 as we find out about Food, Glorious Food. We'll be using our five senses to investigate food from near and far, be using recipes to help us with cooking. As well as eating we will be using food in art - painting, printing, collage and modelling. We'll have fun in our cafe and find out about cooking in the past. In english we will enjoy tradional tales such as The Gingerbread Man, The Little Red Hen and The Enormous Turnip. In maths we will be weighing, investigating fractions and recording information in different ways.

Remember to look at the photos on our topic board in the corridor to see how busy we are.
