Class 1

Welcome to our class page

Welcome to Class 1 - we have Reception and Year 1 children in our class. The Reception children are taught as a single year group in the morning and are joined by some of our Year 1 children in the afternoon for creative curriculum. The children have lots of opportunities to explore both our indoor and outdoor learning environment together as a whole class and share the experience of playing with, and learning from each other.

Our Learning

In Class 1 we like to draw upon the children's interests when planning our learning opportunities. We do, however, have some areas of focus which will be adult initiated.

As the children lead their learning in other directions we adapt planning to make the most of their interests.

The Class 1 children might be found playing in the water, hard at work in our creative workshop or in character in our sheltered role-play area. You might see them dressing up, busy in the writing area or building amazing creations in our construction area. Always busy, we love to play and learn!


Please do look for our Class 1 newsletters in the letters section to find out more about how we spend each week.
