Welcome to Juniper Class.
Juniper Class is the oldest class in the primary school here at Nancealverne and the children are between the ages of 8 -11 years old. We have a wonderful mix of smart, funny and caring students and staff who are driven by teamwork, problem solving, fun and creativity.
There are 3 awesome teaching assistants and 1 teacher who leads Juniper class. We currently have 8 fantastic children. Our students study an array of subjects across the curriculum including, phonics, Maths, science, RE and History and our class offer is bursting with a variety of practical opportunities such as: swimming, horse riding, soft-play, art, cooking, gymnastics and dance.
Our beautiful classroom is our gateway to inspire our students and we pride ourselves in our aspirational, colourful and interactive displays which really help our student’s creativity to ignite. We are currently building a hot air balloon for our reading corner and current topic ‘Up in the Air’ which is our most exciting project yet! Our room is right next to the hall so we are usually the first class to get ready for dinner, and we have doors straight out onto our lovely playground so we also get to make the most of being outside too!
We try to focus on our sensory learning every day and this leads to some very fun (and messy) sessions, but we also have a structured cross curricular time-table which helps to prepare our students for further Key Stages in their educational journey. High expectations and aiming high is key!
Have fun exploring our wonderful class!
In these difficult times of a school closer I hope you are all well and looking after each other!
Your work packs have gone in the post and should be on their way home to you, but in the meantime I will try to keep posting some entertaining and accessible activities for the students on our class page.
Stay safe and stay home as much as you can!
Above are some fabulous reading resources to help to keep your child reading at home. Your child should do at least 20 minutes a day of reading activities so I hope the links to Oxford Owl will support you in keeping them inspired. There are some brilliant free e-Books to read together and some wonderful story-telling clips to have a listen to.
I hope you are all keeping healthy and happy in these further stages of lockdown. Below are a few more ideas to help to keep you inspired and motivated with home learning. These sites have some brilliant interactive activities, clips, games and songs and are really worth a look at whenever you have some free time.
Stay safe and take care of each other
