Class 1 have explored line, curve and many shapes in their first Main Lesson with teacher Jamie Loftus. They have journeyed with Geoffrey and his dog Rufus through an adventurous land discovering many forms and shapes in preparation for learning letters and literacy. Straight and curved lines form the foundation of writing, geometry and what will later emerge as mathematical concepts. In English (and most European languages) the orientation of the written word is left to right, top to bottom, and accordingly, the forms we are practising now adhere to these principles. The children have drawn, painted and walked these shapes as a foundation to beginning the adventure of learning the capital letters.
