Class Information

This page provides an overview to each year group and there routines along with each half terms overview, further information regarding the Curriculum can be found in the Curriculum Section here.

Nursery

The nursery teacher is Mrs Shields, she is supported by Mr Trudgeon and Mrs Blay. Mrs Blay also leads the afternoon Wraparound Care.

Starting school is a big step for children and their parents. At St. Raphael’s we work hard to ensure a happy and positive start to school life. A close partnership between home and school is especially important during your child’s first years. We want you to share in your child’s learning, celebrate their successes and share any concerns with us.

In the Nursery we plan exciting play based activities both inside and outside which encourage children to become independent and motivated learners.

Nursery times are 08:45am until 11:45am.

There are limited places for afternoon childcare, please enquire at the school office or with Mrs Blay for further information.

Reception

The Reception class teacher is Miss Taylor, she is supported by Mrs McLeod.

In Reception we are part of the Early Years Foundation Stage alongside Nursery. We are committed to providing our children with the best start in their first years of schooling and will make judgments about the right mix of activities that are initiated by the child or led by the teacher. That balance may shift over the course of the reception year, in order to ensure that children’s skills and knowledge in language, reading, writing and number are developing well.

Please remember that Reception year is more than just learning to read and write, it is a fun social year and based around play and exploration, our main aim is for our children to become happy, confident and motivated learners!

Please can you make sure your child has their Reading book in their book bags every day.

Year 1

The Year 1 Teacher is Mrs Neale, we hope your child’s time in year 1 will be happy and productive.

We try to make the transition from the Foundation Stage to Year 1 as easy as possible. Initially the first autumn term is spent combining familiar activities and gradually introducing new activities to the children. If there are any concerns please do not hesitate to drop in and have a word.

The classroom is hopefully a bright, learning environment that celebrates the children’s hard work and achievements. There are areas of provision that the children have access to throughout the day. These include; a writing area, a maths area, creative area

Year 4

Mrs Delsoldato and Mrs Lakner are the Year 4 Class Teachers.

In Year 4 we have a varied and exciting curriculum.  Much of this is enhanced through creative activities, visits and visitors.  This a key year for consolidating the learning that has already taken place in school, ready for Key Stage 2. One of the ‘Golden Keys’ this year is to learn ALL times tables and their inverse confidently and rapidly. I am looking forward to sharing this learning journey with your child.
