Welcome to Cassatt - Year R!
In Cassatt class:
we are a team,
we respect each other
and we take risks.
Welcome to the Cassatt class page of our school website.
Year R is a special year where we set the Foundation for the love of life long learning. You only have one childhood so let’s make it fun and memorable.
The Year R team is made up of Mrs Jacob and Mrs Henderson and they have loved welcoming you into the CKS family and finding out all about the new Cassatt children.
In Cassatt Class our topics last for approximately 3 weeks and we learn through play. Our first topic is All about me, where we get to know each other, to know the children’s names, their likes, dislikes and their interests. We will also learn about Nursery Rhymes and Fairy tale stories.
Children often come into school with some knowledge of nursery rhymes and know a variety of fairy tale stories. Nursery rhymes and fairy tale stories provide bite-sized learning opportunities for young children to develop key developmental skills and can often be the trigger for hours of creative and open-ended play. They are a powerful learning source in early literacy and enable children to become interested in the rhythm and patterns of language.
The Foundation Stage Curriculum is broken down into seven areas of learning – Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding of the World, Expressive Arts and Design and Physical Development. Over the term, the children will participate in all of these areas learning through play, story, discussion, rhymes, music and in so many other ways. We hope you enjoy hearing about them all from your child!
