Miss Tregunna, our Deputy Headteacher, ably supported by Mrs Bluring, teaches Horsebridge class which brilliantly bridges the jump between Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Their topics for learning recognise their growing awareness of the world around them and provide challenging opportunities for them to ask questions and learn in greater depth about their own culture and that of others.
Learning is carefully planned as part of the wider infant team and children’s interests and growing knowledge is taken into account. Phonics stills plays a huge part in learning at this age and children’s knowledge is continued from their earlier starting point using Letters & Sounds. Children are independent readers who are beginning to read more widely, often loving non-fiction at this age and moving into reading a wider selection of books that are their own choice.
Horsebridge’s Autumn topic will be Deadly 60; exploring the weird and wonderful world of minibeasts, mammals and all kinds of other creatures.
