Mars Class Reception Year

Welcome to Mars Class, Mrs Lewis is our class teacher supported by Mrs Maddocks.
Mrs Lewis has worked with children for many years and enjoys nurturing and watching the rapid progression of children in the foundation stage and getting to know new parents and families who are already part of our school family. Mrs Maddocks is the Learning Support Assistant (LSA) in Mars Class and works very closely with Mrs Lewis. Mrs Maddocks is a new addition to our team and we look forward to her support in Mars Class.
In Mars Class we follow a creative and immersive curriculum to achieve the Early Learning Goals. We have lots of fun and learning in our indoor/outdoor classroom. We enjoy the school grounds and the local vicinity on our Fresh Air Fridays where we are able to appreciate our beautiful world.
Our Topic for the Autumn term is Celebrations and Festivals, we will be looking at different festivals celebrated by different cultures and why they are celebrated. 
In PSHE this term we will be looking at 'My role in the community'.
Maths & English will follow the National Strategy for EYFS and will involve a mix of child and adult led initiated activities.
