Ducklings and Sparrows Class

Ducklings and Sparrows class is our class for the Foundation Stage, Year 1 and Year 2 children.

The class is taught by Ms Lambert (Monday, Tuesday) and Mrs Canning (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday). 

We also have three teaching assistants, Mrs Atkins, Mrs Potter and Mrs Reeve who work with the class every day, either supporting groups of children or supporting individual children.

Each term the children have a focus topic.  The topic is then a focus for their learning.  The topic for the first half of the Spring Term 2018 is Incredible Inventors and for the second half is A Jungle Adventure.  

There is an outdoor play area which is used by the children in Ducklings and Sparrows class.  We have a Wendy house, which is currently a hospital.  We also have a role play area inside, which is a doctor's surgery.

On Monday mornings and Wednesday afternoons, children in Ducklings and Sparrows class are taught PE by specialist sports coaches with the support of our teaching assistants.  Indoor PE (dance and Gym) takes place on Monday mornings, with outdoor PE (games or athletics) on Wednesday afternoons (though this sometimes comes indoors if it is too cold or wet!).

The children in Ducklings and Sparrows class work hard on their phonic work through daily phonic sessions.  The children are encouraged to read to an adult at school regularly and also at home.

We are fortunate to have regular parent support in the class.  If you are able to offer some time to play games or listen to children read, please see the class teachers.
