Pandas (Year 1)

Welcome to Panda Class


Teacher: Miss Lister

Reception Class Assistant:  Mrs Abel


We worked as a class to write this for the school website. The children wanted to contribute and enjoyed talking about our class, our routines and the way we work. We thought about the things other people need to know about Panda class and we wrote a list.

This is what we came up with…

·         Panda class is Year 1 class. We are the luckiest class in school because we have the newest classroom in the Qube, which even has it’s own group room! We designed the layout of our classroom with our teachers, and we all work hard to look after it.

·         It is important that everyone in Panda Class knows about our class rules. We worked together to write them and we all promised to try our best to follow them by printing our hands onto a canvas. It is now hung up in our classroom to remind us about our rules!

·         We have lots of adults who come over to the Qube to work with us and help us with our learning. Miss Lister and Mrs Abel are with us all the time but other adults in school come to work with us for Maths, Literacy and Phonics which means we work in really small groups doing lots of exciting and interesting activities.

·         We have Literacy and Numeracy mornings. We all work in a small group with an adult on a focus activity, but then we have chance to practise what we have learnt in the classroom whilst we are working in the areas of continuous provision.

·         We enjoy phonics and follow the Read, Write, Inc scheme. We do small group phonics every day before lunch.

·         We love outdoor learning and now work with Miss Lister and Mrs Abel to set up our outdoor area every morning. We work out the rules and ways to stay safe together and help tidy up at the end of the day too!

 This year we have decided we would like to find out and learn about space, witches and wizards, fairy stories, magic and superheroes, jungle animals, under the sea, mini-beasts and bugs, monsters and dinosaurs. We’re going to be really busy…..!!
