WELCOME TO POPPY CLASS!
Teacher: Miss Rachel Roberts
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Lynne Huckson, Mrs Esther Harry, Mrs Sara Brewer
We would like to make a very warm welcome to our new children and families to Meadowbank School. We are very lucky in Poppy class to have lovely exciting classrooms and access to outdoor areas for us to investigate. Every day we will be exploring all areas of learning and experience through focussed activities, group circle times and exploring all areas in our classroom including our role play, reading corner, sensory area and craft area. We will be focussing on learning to follow classroom rules and routines, developing our independence and communication skills.
In the Autumn term we are looking at the topic 'All About Me' and having lots of fun looking at ourselves, the parts of our bodies and our faces. We will explore lots of activities using our senses and look at how we move our bodies in the classroom and outdoors. We will be busy getting to know each other, learning about things that make us happy and sharing our classroom resources.
We will look at how the weather and plants have changed with the seasons as Summer changed to Autumn and then to Winter. We will look at Autumn leaves and Halloween pumpkins and learn about Bonfire Night.
Nearer Christmas we will be busy making crafts including party hats, decorations, baking delicious treats and getting very messy with glitter!
