We have recently adopted a new approach to writing following the scheme 'Talk for Writing'. The children learn the story orally, incorporating actions and remembering repeated refrains. We work together to create story maps and retell the story through drama and song before moving onto various writing tasks linked to the focus story.
The children have thoroughly enjoyed focusing on a new book every 2/3 weeks and completing some amazing Literacy work linked to our topics.
We have done lots of writing! Some of our writing focuses include:
My Name is...
Letter formation and tricky word practice;
Story sequencing and story maps;
Non-fiction fact files and instructions;
Rhyming word work;
The children in Dolphin Class have put a lot of effort into their writing this term. They enjoy thinking of creative and unique ideas and are working extra hard on their letter formation!
Here we are working hard in our Talk for Writing/Guided Reading sessions!
During Autumn, Spring and Summer Term, we work on the following aspects of Numeracy:

Dolphin Class pupils had the opportunity to participate in multiple Movin Monkees sessions in Autumn Term, we worked on our focus, concentration and balance during these sessions.
The children thoroughly enjoyed taking part in these sessions which were themed linked to our Space topic, Winter and Christmas. Having a snowball fight in the hall was a class favourite!
At ISP, we try to incorporate the outdoors into our learning as much as possible. We are so lucky to have our own outdoor provision seperate to the other large school playground used by the whole school. Our dedicated outdoor EYFS area has recently been improved greatly, take a look on our Facebook page for additional photos of this!
At ISP, we have a School Parliament representative in each year group. Here are the respresentatives for Reception and Year 1!
We use Class Dojo across the whole school at Ireleth St Peter's. The children can gain Dojo points for things such as:
Being well behaved;
Listening carefully to instructions;
Reading at home;
Staying on task.
The children work hard to gain points and every time they reach a multiple of 20, they choose a prize. When they reach 100 dojo points, they are awarded a special certificate in our whole school praise assembly!
At Ireleth St Peter’s, through values rooted in Christian teaching, our community nurtures and enables positive foundations for life. Our distinct Christian ethos permeates throughout ISP.
Working together in successful partnership, our school family embraces the common goal of inspiring every child to reach their fullest potential, through God’s love.
