Carne Class - Nursery 1 and 2, Reception and Year 1
In Carne Class we use the EYFS curriculum and the National Curriculum. Children learn through guided sessions, play and practical based activities. Not only do activities focus on academic abilities but also on social and emotional aspects, supporting the child as a whole.
OUR TOPIC - Autumn 
All about Me- How do our bodies work?
Welcome back everyone! I hope you all and a fabulous summer and are ready to get stuck in to school life again. I am really looking forward to getting to know the children in Carne and seeing how much many of them have grown since I was here last. 
We will be learning all about each other and our amazing bodies this term. We will discover what makes us special and unique and what we have in common with one another. We will become a wonderful little team of learners who begin to acquire the skills it takes to support one another and challenge ourselves in our learning. We will be building resilience , becoming more independent, making new friends and discovering our potential as amazing human beings.
The terms plan is attached. Please get in touch if you feel you can support our learning in any way or if you have any questions.

Carne Summer Term 1
Welcome back to the summer term! This term our topic is Transport, we will be covering it in all aspects of our learning. In English we will be looking at fiction and non-fiction books, with a focus on different types of sentences (questions, commands and statements). We will be practising our phonics daily and looking at fun ways to use our phonics skills. In maths we will be going over our learning from the past two terms and hopefully the weather will allow us to do some learning outside in our lovely outdoor area! 
During RE we will be focusing on Buddhism, we will be looking at stories from the life of Buddha and what they can tell us. We will also have our Carne class prayers, which are available for the children each day. 
In science we will be exploring different materials, what everyday objects are made out of and recyclable materials.
Please could your child have their PE kit in every day and as the weather is now getting better, could we have sun cream (name labelled) in school. Please come and see me if you have any questions. Thank you, Miss Higginson.
