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 Tyrrell.
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 new outdoor area we have a mud kitchen, large sandpit, investigation area with bark and mini-beasts, gardening space and water play. We always provide ample opportunity outside for children to develop their literacy, physical and mathematical skills.
