Bluebell Class Page

Welcome to Bluebell Class!
We are Reception and Year 1.
Mr Gazzard is our class teacher
Mrs Watkins and Mrs Kear are our teaching assistants

In Bluebell class we have daily opportunities to read. We read one to one with an adult, visit the school library every week and choose exciting stories for our daily story time. Once a week we read with our year 6 buddies. Each term we have a BIG question. This term it is 'Where shall we go?'. Our core texts are Mr Gumpy’s Outing, The Train Ride and My First Chinese New Year'.

We learn many stories through actions and drawing story maps. We even make our own stories and develop stories through puppet shows and role play. 

We learn to read quickly and confidently using our phonics scheme Read Write Inc.

Reading in Bluebell class is very important to us. We share books several times a day. Each week our Year 6 buddies read with us.

Here are some useful links to our approach to teaching maths. In Reception we follow Whiterose Maths and Number blocks.

Our phonics scheme is 'Read Write Inc' developed by Ruth Miskin.
Please use the phonics link to find out more about how we teach phonics and how you can support your child at home. 

Read Write Inc Phonics

Please take a look at the sound mats from Read Write Inc. You can print these off to use with your child at home. 


These games are really fun. The children use these independently at school. The link is below if you would like to have a go at home.

Tapestry is a great way to be updated with news from your child's week. Their learning, both at home and school is valued. Should you wish to make observations at home to share with school we have attached a 'how to guide'. It's quite simple and we love reading your observations. Give it a go and see what you think!
