Mountfields Lodge School


Welcome to Coral!


Class Teachers: Mrs Noble & Mrs Johnstone

Learning Support Assistant: Mrs Bridges


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 Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. 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 we need to have our PE kits in school.
  • We ask parents to read with their children every day. Children who read themselves or are read to 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, this can be as simple as playing I-spy, clapping syllables or making up silly rhymes. 
  • 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 home. We love seeing them and we see your child’s education as being a 2 way process.

Summer Term 2019


We say it every year but we can't believe how quickly our final term has come around. It's a busy time of year as we have been introducing Class Coral to Year 1, we are arranging story swaps with Key Stage 1 staff, visiting the new classrooms for short periods and we will soon be joining Year 1 & 2 for singing assembly. We are practising for sports day and we have started a new topic on Minibeast.


This week we have been looking in non-fiction books to discover more about minibeast. We have learned how and why minibeast use camouflage and where we might find them. Using this information we were able to be detectives on a minibeast hunt around the school grounds. We discovered so many different minibeast and had a go at recording what we had found.
