Red Base

We are a FS2 class. Mr Lenagh is our class teacher and Mrs Hinsley will teach in Red Base on a Tuesday afternoon. Our teaching assistants are Mrs Turton and Miss Twigg.

We have lots of volunteer helpers in our class, including parents and grandparents.

There are a wide range of activities and resources to support our learning, including computers, role play, creative corner, sand and water.  We also have an outdoor area where we play and learn.

We go on lots of visits and have lots of visitors in to school to help us to learn.

On our visits we have been to the Botanical Gardens, Broomhill Library, Bridlington, Yorkshire Wildlife Park, Magna and Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

Our topics this year include:

  • Autumn 1  -  How would you like to travel?

  • Autumn 2  -  What would your toys do if they came to life?

  • Spring 1  -  Why is the desert hot and the Arctic cold?

  • Spring 2  -  If you were an artist what would you create?

  • Summer 1  -  What would you find in a cave?

  • Summer 2  -  What makes me great?

Red Base has P.E every Monday, Tuesday afternoon  and Wednesday morning. Children require shorts and a t-shirt and a pair of pumps for indoor P.E. Please make sure your child also have an outdoor P.E kit too. (jogging bottoms and a jumper are most appropriate). Earrings must be removed for P.E. If your child cannot remove these independently then please can you do so before they come to school.  Please practice dressing and undressing without help.

Learning Logs are sent home every Friday and need to be returned to school by the following Wednesday.

Please make sure your child’s reading record and key words are in their book bag every day.

Please don’t hesitate to speak to Mr Lenagh before or after school if you have any queries.

Thank you.
