Welcome to Class 1's page!
The staff working in Class 1 are Mrs Burrell, Miss Whitford and Miss Dawson. We work together as a team to ensure that children are happy, engaged and ready to learn effectively, and joyfully. We aim to develop life- long, responsible learners who can appreciate and explore the awe and wonder in the world around them.
There are currently 15 EYFS children and 7 year 1s. The two groups are taught separately in the mornings for phonics, literacy and maths, but then we join together in the afternoon to learn as a whole class. We try to be as active as possible in the class room to ensure that children are fully engaged in their tasks. We take regular active breaks, as well as incorporating movement in to the lessons.
Our topic for the Autumn term is 'Changes'. So far we have looked at the very big change of starting school and moving into Year 1 as well as seasonal and weather changes. Later on in the term, we will look at common animals including pets, as well as observing how we have changed since we were babies.
