Welcome to Alps Class: Reception and Year 1
We are Alps class, the younger children at Lady Seawards Primary School. In Alps class, the children enjoy exploring, investigating and learning through their hands on activities and play. We have a range of activities out daily for the children to enjoy these include construction, small world, role play, writing, fine and gross motor skills, maths, art and the outside environment to name a few. We love to take our learning outside the classroom and explore the world around us. Children are encouraged practise their communication skills and use exciting vocabulary while learning. We have a 'Word of the Week' that the children always love to try and use, this is helping to expand the children's vocabulary and understanding of new words.

What an incredible start to the school year we have had in Alps Class! The children’s learning behaviours have been exceptional and they have all enjoyed a range of learning experiences! We have been learning our song ‘Big Red Combine Harvester’ that we enjoyed performing this morning at the Harvest service. The children in Alps have also loved our Art activities over the last few weeks, mark making in a range of different ways and then producing art work in the style of ‘Mondrian’. We are looking forward to having another positive half term after the break!

Alps class have had another fantastic week of learning at school. They have enjoyed collecting house points for all their efforts in learning and behaviour. On Monday, we went to the garden to explore the world around us and we identified many plants and some children learnt some new plants names. We have also been thinking about ourselves and our families. The children have all created a fantastic self-portrait using line pencil drawings and paint which will be displayed in our classroom next week. Today, the children have loved working with Class 4 to share stories together and meet other children in the school.

Alps Class have had a super first week at school. We have welcomed our new reception children to Lady Seawards and the year 1 children have proved themselves to be fantastic role models. We have been learning through our play with a range of fun and exciting learning opportunities. In class, we have been talking about what we would like to learn this year and explored the idea of 'it's not that we can't do something, it's that we can't do it yet', using the story 'Giraffes can't dance' to support our learning.
