There are 20 children in Sunshine Class

We have lots of fun playing and learning together. The children in Sunshine class are forming good relationships with their peers and the adults in the classroom.

We provide an environment rich in a variety of activities focussed on a weekly theme or book. This may be around a celebration or a topical theme. We value children's interests and take on board their suggestions for learning. Please inform us of anything your child shows a particular interest in, we will happily aim to include it into our future plans.

We are in two groups; Apples and Oranges. Each group will work with their keyworker on next steps and main areas for development. We may work as a whole class, in small groups, as pairs or individually. Sunshine class aims to develop social skills as well as promoting independent learners. We aim to provide children with a fun start to their education laying down the foundations and life skills they will need to build on throughout their next school years.

Sunshine class has access to outdoor provision at all times. For this reason children must have coats in school at all times and wellies wherever possible too. We will be exploring the local environment on walks and visits at times too.

The children in Sunshine class need to have the following things in school every day;

  • Book bag, including reading books and any completed homework.
  • PE Kit (Shorts, tshirt and pumps)
  • Winter PE Kit (Optional)
  • Wellies and a warm coat with a hood
  • Suncream and a sunhat/cap in Summer

We play outside in all weather conditions so please help us to ensure your child is safely equipped for this.

Please make sure that your child's belongings are clearly labelled with their names. If you require any help with uniform or labelling please speak to one of the team. 

Reading

It is really important that you read at home with your child at least three times a week. Children will begin with picture books and these are to develop language and vocabulary ready for when we start reading the Oxford Reading Tree books. It is important that you fill in your child's reading record once they have read so that they don't end up with the same book for too long. We will read with your child approximately 2 times throughout a week.

During the Autumn term we will be learning phonics stage 2 sounds which should really support your child with his/her reading. We also focus on learning high frequency words - those words which pop up very regularly in stories. There will be some of these words stuck in your child's reading record book, please encourage and help them to learn their high frequency words.
