May Hill

May Hill Class comprises of Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children, aged 4-7. This year (2017/18) there are twenty six 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



-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.

Sunflowers and Starlight.

In terms 1 and 2 our topic will be Light and Heat.

We will be making our own lighthouses and investigating electricity. There will be our own lighthouse to play in and act out the Lighthouse Keeper stories. We will be painting sunflowers and looking at the work of Van Gogh. We will use the computer to make firework pictures and compose our own firework music and dance. In history we will find out about The Great Fire of London and Florence Nightingale. There will be a special visitor in the car park as we learn about fire safety and hopefully no-one will get soaked! In maths we will be recording temperatures and measuring shadows. Our d.t. projects will be designing and making sunglasses and using clay to make candle holders.

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