St.Stephen's School

Class RMW

We have come to school and settled into our classroom and routines very quickly. Our class is RMW and our teachers are Maryjane Winston and Eva Duncan. We love coming to school every day in our new, smart school uniform to see our friends and to work hard.

This year we are learning to be independent, to listen and talk to each other, and to show that we have excellent manners. We like to say nice words like ‘Please,’ ‘Thank you’ and ‘Sorry’ because this makes others happy as well as making ourselves feel good.

We will be basing our learning around some fantastic and very special books where we will be going on adventures to the South Pole, visiting witches in the basement and building our very own magical worlds with cardboard boxes. As well as this, we will be learning about important events and celebrations throughout the year and making some seasonal visits to the forest.

During the year we will be improving our skills in all the areas of early development:
In Personal, Social and Emotional Development, where we practise taking turns, getting along and being proud of who we are.
In Physical Development, where we will practise our fine and gross motor skills.
In Communication, Language and Literacy, where we will enjoy sharing stories together and taking part in lots of dramatic role play.

We will also learn our phonic sounds to help us to read and write, and will be using our number skills to help us to count, add and take away.

We will be holding some exciting parent workshops and we look forward to seeing you there.

If you have any questions please come and see us.

Thank you

Maryjane Winston and Eva Duncan
