Learning Environment

In Waymakers class we provide an engaging, safe and welcoming learning environment. Children have opportunities to learn inside and outside the classroom. They have regular trips to Footscray Meadows for outdoor learning to enhance what has taken place inside the classroom.

Reading Corner

Waymakers reading corner is an inviting space that has been created to promote a love and passion for reading. All book genres are clearly labelled and we have a box of 'Miss Matthews favourites', where they can explore and read my favourite picture books. Our reading display is updated every half-term with our core texts.

Children love reading stories to the teddy bear.


Now the children are in key stage 1, they follow the National Curriculum. A major focus of the key stage 1 curriculum is developing children's reading skills using a programme of Phonics. We use the Little Wandle scheme to support this. In June 2023, the year 1 will complete a Phonics test which is set by the Government.
