Our topic this term is 'What can you see in summer?'
Whilst we are patiently waiting for summer to arrive, Class R have lots of fun learning planned for the weeks ahead.
We look forward to being very curious and asking lots of questions as we learn about the world around us. We will find out all about the different parts of a plant and what it needs to stay alive by carrying out a science experiment! We will be busy outdoors as we look around to see all of the exciting changes that come with a new season, as well as going on a 'minibeast hunt' and planting some seeds.
As ever we look forward to reading lots of fantastic stories such as 'The Tiny Seed' and 'Jasper's Beanstalk' to support our topic activities and to help our reading, writing and language skills!
We update our Class blog regularly to keep you informed on all of the fun things going on in the classroom.

We are always very happy to welcome parents in to the class that would like to volunteer to hear children read or help out with a group activity. Please speak to a member of the Class R team if this I something you would like to do. Thank you!

Our Stratton key values are: Friendship, Respect, Responsibility, Peace and Truthfulness. Out of the many Christian values these were selected by the children, staff, parents and governors as our key values for school life.
Our home school value this term is HOPE. Click on the link below to find out more.
It is important that our Christian Values are evident and encouraged in our daily lives within our school community. In recognition of children who show responsibility, respect, friendship, who are at peace or truthful, we now have a "values tree" where their photo will be placed. The tree, in the school hall, has colour coded leaves representing our chosen key Christian Values. When a child is spotted by a member of our school community to be demonstrating one of the Values, their photo will go on the appropriate colour leaf in celebration.
