Class 1 - Unicorn
This is my 1st year at Ysgol Berriew, but I have previously been teaching for 11 years. During this time, I have had a broad range of experience in different year groups however I have a real passion for early years. Currently I am teaching Class Unicorn which is Reception Class.
In Unicorn Class, we aim to provide a happy, stimulating environment for children to learn through play. All children will experience a wealth of activities and opportunities through which they will grow socially, intellectually, physically and emotionally. During their time with us, children will become independent; learn to share and negotiate; play co-operatively with others; observe and make predictions; learn to control tools; make decisions and solve problems; and begin to develop numeracy and literacy skills. we love to learn through play using adult led and child initiated experiences throughout each day. We have a large outside learning environment, which we use all through the year for mud kitchen, sand large construction, role play, writing and maths activities to name a few.
Our morning session concentrates on building English and Maths skills whilst the afternoon sessions are dedicated to the remainder of the curriculum, which is generally delivered using a termly topic from our creative curriculum.
We are very fortunate to have a on site Pre-School which many children attend before beginning their school journey at Berriew School.
