Class 1

Hello and welcome to Class 1's page. 
Class 1 comprises of Pre-school, Reception and Y1 children. Pre-school and Reception follow the Early Years Foundation Stage, and staff assess against the guidance document Development Matters. We ensure that we offer the children a stimulating and exciting environment where they can follow their own interests. Through quality interactions staff can challenge and extend the children's learning. We have focused phonics and maths groups during the day, and ensure that writing is embedded throughout everything we do. 
Y1 follow the National Curriculum with focused adult inputs throughout the day, allowing time for  independent learning around those inputs. 
 
We are fortunate to have our own Forest School space and aim to spend one morning a week there, enjoying the time den building, digging, climbing, bug hunting and drinking hot chocolate!
 
Spring term 2018:
We have been taking a Step Back In Time to investigate Victorian homes and to compare them with our homes today, We have been thinking about the seasons, especially winter and looking for signs of Spring. We are looking forward to the second half of the spring term where our topic will be How Does Your Garden Grow?
