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 Reception have had their first lesson on the Balance Bikes. They learnt how to propel the bikes and then how to glide and stop. They all tried really hard and are looking forward to the next lesson.Read More
Today the children in Reception had a mission, to free the dinosaurs! The dinosaurs were frozen in ice and the children were asked to predict how they thought they could be released from the ice. They came up with some great suggestions which they tried. These included 'bashing' them, pouring warm water on them, adding salt to the ice and submerging the ice trapped dinosaurs in warm water. A combination of all these suggestion ensured that the dinosaurs could be set free.Read More
Today the children have been celebrating Shrove Tuesday by making pancakes.! They wrote out the recipe and instructions and then mixed their batter. They then took turns to cook their pancakes and, with the help of Mrs Tanser, tossed them to make sure they were cooked on both sides. The children then really enjoyed eating them.Read More
