Mars Class Reception Year

Welcome to Mars Class, Mrs Anita Santinelli-Clarke is our class teacher.
In Mars Class we follow a creative and immersive curriculum. We have areas in our classroom which continuously support our play-led learning such as writing, fine motor, maths, role-play, small-world, construction, creative and a reading corner.
We have lots of fun learning in our indoor/outdoor classroom.
Our Topic this Summer Term is Mini-Beasts. 
  • We will be meeting some minibeasts in an interactive workshop.
  • We will be observing and sketching the natural world and taking photos of it using a camera.
  • We will be taking part in a minibeast hunt, searching for and identifying minibeasts.
  • We will be learning about the life cycle of a caterpillar/butterfly and newts/frogs.
  • We will be learning to compare similarities and differences.
Please take a look at our Mini-Beasts Information sheet below for further details.
On Fridays we will explore our topic through Fresh Air Friday where we explore our wider community.
