Lambrook

Welcome to Lambrook Class, my name is Mr Travitzky and I teach Reception and Year 1. We are supported throughout the week by Mrs Bates.                                                          

Here are the timetables for Reception and Year 1. We share a learning journey, but will often be doing different things throughout the day to meet the differing needs of the children. 

We organise our learning into blocks called 'Learning Journeys'. These an range from two days to three weeks. They are immersive experiences for the children and focus on a few key elements of the curriculum. We will cover the entire curriculum by the end of the year, but this allows us to really contextualise each individual element rather than teach an hour each week piecemeal. The exception to this is PE each week. 

George and the Dragon

Our Latest learning journey has focused on George and the Dragon. We have learnt to retell the story and are acting it out as a play. We have made crowns, swords, sheilds and dragon masks! Alongside this we have also focused on what makes us scared and how we are brace. We have tied this in with the celebration of Michaelmas and in honour of this tradition we have baked a bread dragon which we will be decorating with autumnal treasures we collected from our village. 

 

Calendar Update

Here is one of our completed calendars in action. I think you will agree it looks fantastic and reflects the hard work and consideration the children put into their project. 

 

  

For our first learning journey we focused on D&T and Maths. We designed perpetual calendars to help us learn our days of the week. They have become really treasured objects for the children and the quality of their work spoke volumes for their attention to detail and enthusiasm. 

  

Here are the children sawing and oiling their pieces of timber. Photos from the calendars at home to follow. 

We will be creating our own prayer cushions next week.
