FS2 / Year 1

Welcome to FS2/Year 1!

Welcome to Aston Lodge Primary School! We are ELM, the school’s FS2/Y1 class.

In Elm class, we work hard to ensure a safe and stimulating learning environment for all children. All of our children are encouraged to look after and respect each other and our classroom. Children learn and are challenged through daily focus groups and the high quality provision within our classroom, which is linked to the text we are reading.

Our FS2 children are taught to the EYFS curriculum and have a balance of learning through play, and adult initiated teaching and activities. Our Y1 children are also still enabled to have the opportunity to learn through challenges within the provision, but are encouraged to transitionĀ at the beginning of the year into a more formal, independent way of learning and working within the national curriculum.

It is important to us in Elm class that all children are happy, engaged and enjoy coming to school. We enjoy bagels every morning as well as Show and Tell once a week! We focus our day on positive reinforcement through behaviour and learning motivators such as Star of the Day, Pride Points and reaching the rainbow for amazing effort! We encourage strong home-school links and communication, therefore we have an open-door policy and parents are more than welcome to pop in for a chat with the class teacher.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Miss Cotterill, Mrs Wills and Mrs Broadhead.
