Lowry Class

Welcome to Lowry Class

We are a Reception and Year 1 class in Woodhouses VC Primary. In class, our teacher is Mrs Mulligan and our TA is Miss Jarvis. In Lowry class, we run two curriculums (Early Years and National Curriculum) side by side so that no child misses out on what they need to become brilliant learners. We focus our attention on play and believe that this is a vital way for children to learn through discovery and curiosity, with skills sprinkled on top! Our children enjoy continuous provision indoor and out, but also learning about their environment through good use of our woodland area. Pop back weekly to find out what we have been up to! laugh

What a wet week we have had in Lowry, but we have still managed to enjoy ourselves. We have been looking at how the grounds at Woodhouses are changing as we move into Autumn, and have been reading some stories and experimenting with printing with Autumn colours.  This week in maths, Reception have been working on sorting and have enjoyed looking at things in the classroom that can be sorted into different categories,  and Year 1 have been carrying on working on comparing numbers. In literacy this week, we have been helping Cinderella plan a party and have been creating shopping lists and guest lists for her, before creating an invitation for a character. On Thursday we had our first virtual farm visit with our farmer Charlie, who showed her some of her fields since they have been harvested and now been sown with wheat for next year. The children had lots of questions for her and found out lots about her farm and how it has changed and the jobs she has to do, as it moves into Autumn. 

We are hoping that if you are out about about and discover some autumn treasures, that the children can bring them in to share with us. laugh

What a great first week back and welcome to our new children! When we have all the permissions for sharing photos, we will upload some photos of the fun and great learning we have been doing! Our new children have settled well and have made lots of new friends. 

Our year 1s have returned as super role models to our new children and have already shown that they are ready to learn! We have an exciting year ahead planned and will be posting what we get up to each week on here.  

Reception parents - please don't forget to hand in any contact details and permissions to the office. 

Looking forward to our year ahead,

Mrs Mulligan smiley
