Welcome to Fir Class
Our key priorities are independence in learning via continuous provision, continued development of cooperative play and the acquisition of early curriculum skills such as phonics, reading, number and writing.
The Adults in Fir Class are:
|Mrs E. Platt||Class Teacher|
|Mrs R. Simmons||Teaching Assistant|
|Mrs D. Lees/ Mrs P. Badrock||Teaching Assistants|
|Miss P. Ruddock||Teaching Assistant|
Within the First Steps Pathway classes theme their learning around half termly topics. These are chosen with pupil’s interests and developmental levels in mind and can change dependent on the needs of particular cohorts. Teaching and learning is delivered in a cross curricular way and planned activities often cover more than one area of learning following the Early Years Framework.
Our areas of learning are-
• Expressive Art and Design
• Physical Development
• Personal, Social, Emotional and Mental Health Development
• Understanding the World.
All our sessions are hands on and engaging to ensure pupils develop a love for learning. Each session is differentiated to the individual child to ensure learning is meaning and purposeful to all.
Here are the topics we shall be doing through the year
