Primary School

Lunsford: A Journey of Success and Excellence

Panda (Year R)


Welcome to Panda Class! 

This term our topic is 'All about me'






Welcome to Panda class

We are so excited for you to join Lunsford Primary School 


This term we will be settling in and getting used to school life. 


We will be looking at mark making, recognising our name and writing and exploring numbers 1-10. 


Phonics and reading

We will be beginning to learn our phonics using the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds revised scheme. 

It is so exciting to learn phonics as we can start reading! 

Reading books will come home once we start the teaching cycle when we are settled in. 


In maths we are looking at the composition of the numbers 1- 5. We will look at pictures that represent the amount and learn how to spot the numbers without counting! 

We will have games and activities that are in the classroom and outside so that the children develop their understanding of number.

Later on in the term we will look at mass and experiment with different objects and discuss if they are heavy or light. We will compare objects and decide if they are heavier or lighter. 

We will investigate mass in the outside area with sand, water, construction and the mud kitchen.

Forest school:

Later on in the term we will be taking part in forest school in our own forest school area. Your child will need wellies and a waterproof to wear. You will be notified when this will take place so you can bring them in. 

Wellies are to be kept in school on our rack so we have them all the time for the outside area. 


Useful information:


Remember the children need a water bottle everyday please. 

Make sure all clothing is named - this is essential in Panda class as jumpers all look the same! 

Please let members of staff know if there is a change of adult picking up via Tapestry.
