Welcome to Coral!


In class Coral we have lots of fun exploring, creating and learning through play. Every day we have time to work together as a group or independently on our own choice of task. We work hard to develop our confidence, independence and resilience. If you visit our classroom you will see a variety of activities both indoors and outdoors that enable us to develop our skills, knowledge and understanding of the EYFS 7 Areas of Learning. (see link) Whilst in Class Coral the foundations for our future learning will be established to prepare us for our journey through school.

Parents and carers are always welcome to come in to speak with any member of our class team if you have questions or concerns. We will keep you informed of our successes and achievements, once you have joined Class Coral, via Tapestry Online Learning journey with updates, photographs and video.

Just a few reminders

  • Please please make sure all clothes, coats, shoes, wellies and PE kits are ALL NAMED.
  • Please send your child with a named water bottle with fresh water in each day and a healthy snack.
  • We always need waterproofs and wellies in school as we are outside no matter what the weather.
  • We have PE on Fridays so need to have our PE kits in school.
  • We ask parents to read with their children every day. Children who read every day at home make much more rapid progress.
  • Phonics underpins so much of what we do. Please reinforce the sounds we have been learning at school when you are at home.
  • Keep an eye on Tapestry – any reminders or information about what we will be learning next week will be on that.
  • Please send us in photos and notes on Tapestry about what your child has been doing at school. We see your child’s education as being a 2 way process.

Winter Term

We have had a very busy time in Class Coral!

We have just finished our topic on Space, learning about spaceships, rockets and planets. The children created their own aliens and we had our own 'Coral Space Centre'. We have also been learning about animals with visits from the children's pets. To add to this, we had our own duck eggs to hatch! The children have worked very hard and deserve a well-earned rest during the Easter holidays.

Next term we will begin our topic of Spring: planting seeds, bulbs and some potatoes. The children will look after these and eventually, when the potatoes harvest, we will pick, clean, cook and eat them!
