Welcome to Caterpillar Class. In Caterpillar Class we have a mix of Reception & Year 1 with Mrs Nikki Moore as the teacher with the support of Mrs Gibbs, Mrs Lintott and Mrs Overton.
We strive to make learning fun and promote our school values of Safe Kind Ready through a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities. We offer a predominantly play-based approach to learning in Reception, gradually moving to more focused activities in line with the National Curriculum as children progress through Year 1. We encourage independence and involve children in their own learning and to be proud of their achievements.
Please scroll to the bottom of our page to see our termly learning overviews and Year 1 homework grids.
In Year 1 we build on our prior learning and explore number numerical patterns such as this part-whole model approach to early addition and subtraction.
In Reception, we choose our own activities to explore mathematical concepts such as pattern and shape.
In art, we have been exploring different types of lines, using a variety of media, before creating collaborative art as a group.Our Year 1 line collage.
We take pride in contributing to our learning environment, making a bead chandelier.
We take our learning outside where we can. Here we are learning about the countries which make up the United Kingdom.
