At North Somercotes CE Primary School we are proud of our caring, creative and happy environment where all individuals are valued equally and encouraged to achieve their full potential. We are a kind, friendly, hard-working and generally amazing class.
Our teacher is Mrs Abualzulof and our teaching assistants are Mrs Musgrove, Mr Thornton, Mrs Tilston and Mrs Zukowskyj.
Through play, and with the support of adults in class, children explore and discover ideas, skills and concepts. The children are encouraged to be problem solvers and may repeat ideas they have thought of to build on knowledge, the children are fabulous at thinking of new ways to do things! As well as learning through play and child initiated activities, the children also work closely with the adults through adult directed activities. We may introduce a new skill to build on or teach the children some new facts about a subject. The most important factor is to create an exciting and engaging curriculum and foster that love for learning. If we can do this is Foundation we can take this attitude through to the rest of our school life!

These seven areas together are used to plan your child’s learning and activities in Reception. Children in the EYFS learn by creative and critical thinking, by playing, exploring & being active - both indoors and outside. Assessments are made throughout the year & are based on observations and knowledge of the whole child. Term 1 is all about getting to know each other. During this half term, staff will observe and work with your child making judgements regarding the best way to engage them and take their learning forward.
This term the children will enjoy taking home books chosen from our class library. Please note these are meant to be read by and with an adult. The children will be able to change their library book on Tuesdays and Fridays at the beginning of the day.
