Jackson Class

At Reed First School, Jackson Class covers the period of time the children spend in Nursery and Reception. The class teachers are Mrs Arnott and Mrs Cottenden.

We operate a flexible induction programme so that the needs of each individual child can be met.

In our Early Years unit we have created an environment which supports, encourages and stimulates the children to become independent learners.

Celebration Assembly

Autumn Term 2022

This half term we have been learning lots about Autumn. We went on an Autumn walk around the local area and found lots of signs of Autumn.

We learnt about the artist Andy Goldsworthy and used the items that we had collected on our walk to create our own Andy Goldsworthy inspired artwork.

In phonics, nursery children developed their listening skills to identify environmental and musical sounds. They also started to explore rhyme. Reception children have started to learn phase 2 phonics and all are now reading decodable phonics books.

In maths we have been focusing on subitising amounts to 3. This means knowing how much an amount is without counting.

We have enjoyed regular cooking sessions. So far we have made pizza wraps, apple pastry slices and spider biscuits.

Everyone has also been really busy learning, developing and refining new skills in Child Initiated Learning (play).
