The Inspirers class is taught by Miss Matthews and on a Wednesday, Mrs Thomas.
The children will develop the learning journey they started when they joined the school, in the Reception class when they were taught the Early Years and Foundation Stage curriculum. Now the children are in year 1, they will follow the National Curriculum. A major focus of Year 1 curriculum is developing children's reading skills using a programme of Phonics. In June 2022, the class will complete a Phonics test which is set by the Government.
Help your child with Phonics by looking at the Phonics guide below.
We love reading
This autumn the Inspirers have been reading a range of books including Feelings by Libby Walden, to support Wellbeing, the Snail and the Whale and The Smartest Giant in Town, both by Julia Donaldson
Inspirers explore art and science.
As part the Inspirer's art curriculum they will look at the work of Vincent Van Gogh.
We wholeheartedly follow the Bexley Agreed Syllabus as this reflects that the religious traditions in Great Britain are in the main Christian, whilst taking account of the teaching and practices of the other principal religions presented in Great Britain. This agreed syllabus expects schools as a minimum to provide opportunities for pupils to be taught about Christianity and the five recognised world faiths and also explore the secular world view. We support this inclusive approach.
