Welcome to Gemini!
Mrs Clayton, Gemini Class Teacher and Mrs D'Andrea, Gemini Class Teaching Assistant.
Welcome to Woolaston School. I am very excited to be joining the school this year and especially working in Gemini Class. I know Year One is an important year for the children to transition from Early Years to being ready for Year Two.
In Year One we continue to teach through play-based curriculum. Learning through play allows the children to develop their skills in an enjoyable and purposeful way. Each day the children will learn though either a small adult led activity, child-led investigations, or by choosing from a menu of activities on the Planning Board.
As a teacher I understand that children learn in different ways and this is why I set a range of activities to engage all my learners. I encourage the children to use their imaginations and be as creative as they can.
I hope your children have as much of an enjoyable year in Gemini class as I plan to have and my door is always open for parents/carers to speak to me about their child.
