Welcome to Class 1!

Class 1 is a lovely mix of Reception and Year 1 children. Mrs Barker and Miss Armstrong work in Class 1 and we love to help the children to become fantastic members of Hunwick Primary School! In Class 1 we aim to ensure your child is happy, safe and that they enjoy learning throughout their school day. On a Friday afternoon we are very lucky to have Mrs Oliver teaching the class - she is an ICT expert and helps us improve our computing skills.

Reception children learn through play, practical activities and direct teaching to develop their skills and allow them to be creative, curious and engaged learners. We focus on subjects such as Phonics, Literacy and Maths, as these are the fundamental areas of Early Learning. Year 1 children have a more structured morning of Phonics, Literacy and Maths. Then in the afternoon, they develop their skills in subjects such as geography, science, art, music etc. through discussion, practical activities and direct teaching.

All children have an opportunity to access the continuous provision and are encouraged to develop their interests. Children are challenged through problem solving, questioning to help further their learning through play.

As well as learning educational skills, children in Class 1 work on forming new friendships, being more independent, and following structures and routines. Hunwick Primary School children are valued members of our community and in Class 1 we support children to let their big personalities shine bright, like stars that they are!
