Mars Class Reception Year
Welcome to Mars Class, Mrs Lewis is our class teacher supported by Mrs Byford.
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 Byford is the Learning Support Assistant (LSA) in Mars Class and works very closely with Mrs Lewis. She is a valuable and long standing member of the school team. 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 this term is Celebrations and Festivals, covering the Christian Harvest Festival, the Jewish Tabernacles Festival, Hindu & Diwali, Christmas & the birth of Jesus as well as the Gunpowder Plot and the importance of Democracy. We will also observe Remembrance Day and reflect on the contribution from all participating servicemen and women across all wars.
