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, butt his allows us to really contextualise each individual element rather than teach an hour each week piecemeal. The exception to this is PE each week. 

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.
