Welcome to

Elmsett C of E Primary School

Otters Class - Year 1 & 2

Otters mark the transition from the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum to Key Stage 1 where the children begin to become more independent learners and their exciting journey through early education continues.  It is a mixed 1/2 class where the children are taught either as a whole class or, in the case of French and ICT, in a separate year group with Mrs Hooper.  Teaching assistant support allows the grouping of children as and when needed, according to their individual needs. 

Although some subjects are taught independently, a creative approach to learning is applied and many aspects of the curriculum are covered within whole school topics.  A variety of school trips are also enjoyed by the children to supplement their learning.

 

This term our topic is Fairy Tales.  After reading The Three Billy Goats Gruff, Otters really enjoyed designing their own trolls and thinking of accompanying adjectives.

The Otters wrote acrostic poems to celebrate Harvest.

Otters have been using a Zones of Regulation chart to help us talk about how we're feeling.  When our names are in the green zone we're ready to learn.  Wow - we're all in the Zone!
