Welcome to Class One!
Class 1 includes children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. In Class 1 there are two Teachers; Mrs Tanser and Mrs Eyton-Jones.
Although Reception is included in Class 1 they are taught separately a vast majority of the time. Reception and Years 1 & 2 have their individual well resourced classrooms that provide rich learning environments. Reception also have a large outdoor area.
The outdoor area includes a mud kitchen, large sandpit, investigation area with bark and mini-beasts, gardening space, a tool bench with tools and water play. We always provide ample opportunity outside for children to develop their literacy, physical and mathematical skills.
Today the children in Class 1 had great fun participating in a variety of Christmas crafts. They made reindeer food, decorated bobble hats, made bead decorations for their Christmas trees and they made rainbow snowflake decorations. They also made paper chains and decorated Christmas Jumpers.Read More

This week's animal Allsorts topic is Farm animals. The children are having an amazing time milking the cows, collecting eggs and then using the eggs (plastic) to make cakes. They have used books to write about their favourite animals and have used their phonics skills to match pictures of farm animals with words. They even had the opportunity to play with a farmyard with real cereal crops.Read More
