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 and  two Teaching Assistants; Mrs Johnson and Mrs Going. 

We are very fortunate to have three areas within the class – a fantastic outdoor area and two spacious, well-resourced classrooms, which enable us to provide a rich learning environment.

In our outdoor area we have 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.
