Southill Primary School

"A caring, family school"

Reception and nursery Class

Welcome to Martins Class.

Martins Class is the home to our Early Years Foundation Stage provision.

Our class teacher is Miss Sheppard, who works closely with our teaching assistant Mrs
Kingham. Our learning support assistants in the class are Miss SaundersMrs
StewartMrs Gooding and Mrs Findon.  We are lucky to have a bright outdoor learning
environment with a new covered area. 

Inside we have a large classroom with continuous provision for each area of learning.  There are whole class sessions; adult led group work and child initiated opportunities.  Whilst we do follow a topic for each half term our driving force is the children’s interests and plans are adapted to accommodate these.  We have daily phonics and maths sessions.  Snack time is a social occasion where communication and language is a particular focus.  The children have a PE lesson  and Library time .  Below is our maths strategies booklet which shows you how we are taught at school so that you can support us at home.

There is a weekly Home Challenge which gives parents an opportunity to talk to their children about their learning and become involved in their school work.  We also recognise that the home is an important learning environment for the children and we invite parents to share children’s achievements with school so that they can be celebrated with the class.

Our timetable and yearly plan are below:
