Welcome to Wayland Class
"Adults use effective strategies to help children to begin to write individual letters and sounds to build words and develop their early writing skills securely." OFSTED February 2016
Wayland is a mixed class of 18 Foundation and Year 1 children. Our teacher is Miss Read and we have a full time teaching assistant. We have a bright, colourful and spacious classroom with good access to our outside learning space.
The Foundation curriculum is organised into seven areas of learning and development.
Three prime areas;
• communication and language
• physical development
• personal, social and emotional development
And four specific areas
• understanding of the world
• expressive arts and design
Some children work towards Early Learning Goals, whilst others work beyond these goals and are set greater challenges. Our teachers are all qualified in early years' education.
We believe that a caring and supportive environment at this formative stage will help develop confident children who enjoy coming to school and achieve their full potential.
OFSTED reported in February 2016 that we have... “a curriculum which provides children with interesting and stimulating activities.”
