Welcome to Class 7
Snr Support Staff
From a child's very first day in reception, all the way through to year 6, we support children to make the right 'CHOICES' to enable them to grow into well-rounded, motivated individuals.
In Class 7, we have a positive learning attitude and work hard to achieve our personal goals and targets. We all try to make the right 'CHOICES' and give 100% in everything we do. We work hard to build positive relationships between home and school to ensure that your child feels comfortable and supported.
Our classroom is set up to allow all children to have the space they need to learn to the best of their ability.
Class 7 are lucky enough to have computers set up in the classroom. Children enjoy using these to type up their amazing English work and to play educational games.
We have lots of displays to help us with our learning. The children especially like the handwriting display as it reminds us how to form our letters correctly.
We have a lovely, calming reading area that children enjoy using for reading, quiet time and meditation.
Topics Over Year
In English we will cover lots of genres of writing:
Traditional tales, Myths and Legends, Letters, Adventure Stories, Adverts, Stories with Imaginary Worlds, Instructions and Poetry. We will read lots of these types of texts and write our own.
This year in Maths we will cover:
Addition and Subtraction, Multiplication and Division, Money, Statistics, Length, Fractions, Time, Properties of Shape and Mass and Capacity.
We will focus on securing our knowledge of the 7, 8 and 9 times table.
At Rift House we aim for your child to participate in a broad and balanced curriculum. Our timetable shows various opportunities that your child will access daily, including opportunities for mindfulness, Primary Movement and energizers.
