Hello and welcome to Miss Darby’s Class
In our class we have the Reception and Year 1 children as well as myself, Miss Darby, the class teacher and Mrs Stanton, our teaching assistant.
Our classroom is always busy with a focus on child initiated, active and experiential learning. It is split into different areas which include:
Malleable area (for dough and other types of modelling and sensory play)
Maths area (with lots of resources for practical learning)
Funky fingers station (to help strengthen the muscles in our hands for writing)
Role play corner (where we can act out our experiences)
Small world tray (for lots of imaginative play)
Writing area (for lots of different types of mark making)
Construction area (for building with all different kinds of equipment)
Book corner (a quiet corner of the classroom which promotes a love of reading)
Creative area (with lots of free access resources to use independently)
Outdoor area (which includes sand and water trays, loose parts large scale construction, PE equipment and a writing shack)
We also have a Year 1 zone which we use for focused subject learning relating to the National Curriculum
Alongside all of these areas where we can develop our understanding through play and careful questioning and support from adults and our friends we also take part in some small group activities with adults each day. One morning / afternoon a week we enjoy taking our learning outside for Welly Walks which are invaluable for developing our communication and social skills!
I hope that you will enjoy looking at our class web page to find out about some of the things that we are learning. I look forward to sharing an insight into our adventures with you here. Please remember if I can help with anything then do not hesitate to catch me.
A huge welcome and thank you,
