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.
