Welcome to Lime Tree Class
We are a mixed Reception/ Year 1 class who all enjoy learning through a mix of play and teacher lead experiences.
Mrs Davey is our usual teacher, assisted by Dawn Hookway or Gina Parker, but we also welcome other members of staff into our class when needed.
We start the day by playing with our friends in the 'little playground' before coming in and have a wake up, shake up song to get our brains going. Everyday we have a phonics session, which is vital to our learning across the rest of our school career, some time to explore Maths ideas and some time to focus on writing. We also have a different topic each half term and explore that further in the afternoons usually, although it does creep into our morning work without us noticing sometimes! At the end of day, we have a story read to us before we go home.
Information about our topics and what we will be learning can be found in our topic webs below, along with some photographs of the fun we have at school.

Areas of Learning
Below I have begun to create pages to provide you with ideas to support your child in developing skills in several areas of learning. Please click on the pages below to discover ideas and activities to support your child's development at home.
I have included some website links below that I sometimes use during our phonic sessions. The children enjoy playing these games and find them very engaging. The aim is to use your phonic knowledge to decode real and nonsense words and sort them correctly. This game is a fun way for children to practice using their decoding skills.
Top Marks Maths
We often play some quick Maths games to get our brains working. I have included the link to some of the them which might be good to play if you get the chance.
