Welcome to the Rockets Class
In Rockets class we follow the EYFS curriculum, we are very busy throughout the day.
Our aim is to learn whilst having lots of fun both indoors and outdoors. We encourage children to share their interests and what they have been doing at home.
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. We have an open door policy and will do anything we can to support our children and their families.
Reading & Phonics
We encourage children to read each night at home, even if it is only a few pages. This encourages children to reflect on what they have read. Even if they read the whole book in a couple of nights, it is important to revisit it a number of times throughout the week, as children often forget or are even able to make up a different story each time.
The link below 'Sharing the book' shows a selection of questions which you can ask your child when sharing their book with them, particularly when they are picture books.
In class we teach phonics for 20 minutes each day. This is an opportunity for children to listen to the sounds the letters make and then use these sounds to build words.
Every time we learn a new sound, we also learn a song and an action to help the children remember it. Please encourage your children to practise these sounds at home.
In Rockets class we have continuous provision which enables us to learn through play throughout the day. Below are pictures of our creative area, construction area, reading corner, writing corner, sand pit, roleplay area, malleable area and small world.
We cover lots of wonderful topics and most importantly we learn as much as we can about the world around us.
