Welcome to the Kangaroos class!
We are one of two Reception classes at Huntingtower CP Academy as we learn and play alongside the Koalas class. Our teachers are Mrs. Giles and Mrs Goddard-Tate, and our teaching assistant is Mrs. Jappy. We also have lots of other adults who help us throughout the day.
We have a fabulous setting which has many different learning areas including role play, writing, painting, maths, reading, water, sand, puzzles, games, computers, small world and construction. We love to learn through play and we even have our very own outdoor learning area. Please take a look at the photographs of our classroom within our class gallery page.
We are always very busy at school and we begin each day with our morning Skills Workshop. We learn to read and write by taking part in Read Write Inc phonics lessons, and we also take books home to practise reading with our parents. We love Mathematics too and enjoy having a problem to solve!
In the afternoons, we focus on our project/themed learning. Our first project of the year is ‘Food Glorious Food,' and we will be enjoying many food themed stories as part of this including, 'The Little Red Hen', 'Stone Soup' and 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears.' We will be using all of our five senses to explore different types of foods and we will also be learning about meals from around the world. We will be focusing on Diwali in particular and which foods are eaten as part of this celebration.
Please read the attached curriculum letter to find out more.
