Kangaroos Class

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 teacher is 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 project this term  is ‘Captivating Castles,' and we will be enjoying many castle themed stories as part of this including, 'Rapunzel', 'The Knight and the Dragon' and 'Sleeping Beauty.' We will be looking at the features of castles and various castles from around the world.  We are very excited about two special events that will occur as part of our project.  The first is a family shield workshop and the second is a prince and princess party. Later in the term we will learn about Chinese New Year, this year it is the year of the pig. We will also be solving problems about rescuing the Frozen characters that have been trapped in ice.
