Welcome to our Lower School class page!
The children are taught by myself, Mrs Penny Kemp and our teaching assistant Miss Victoria Jones.
In this class we have EYFS, Year 1 and Year 2 children learning together in our lovely big classroom and fabulous outdoor area.
Our learning is inspired by a theme or a topic which follows the Lancashire teams creative curriculum list of topics (on a two year rolling programme) for Year 1 and Year 2 and meets the requirements for the National Curriculum. Our EYFS children learn through mini topics linked to the learning the Year 1 and 2 children are doing along, with ideas and interests they have themselves sparking little units of learning. The EYFS children learn within the guidance of the Foundation Stage Profile and their learning is assessed and recorded on the Tapestry Online Journal which our parents and relatives of those children enjoy.
We currently have a PE lesson every Thursday, these are led by the excellent coaches from Fleetwood Town Community Trust and focus on teaching different skills each half term. The children (and the teachers) really enjoy these lessons! Weather permitting we aim to always have our PE lessons outdoors and ask that the children have a pair of jogging bottoms in with their PE kits.
Reading books are sent home every night and ask the children to practise their reading every night with an adult, your help at home has a huge impact on their progress.

We truly love our learning and time together in our beautiful setting here in Inskip, we value and care for each other and aim to do our best in everything we do.
