Class 1

Welcome to Class One!  


Class Teachers: Mrs Stephenson & Mrs Palmer 


Teaching Assistant: Mrs Brookes 


We are a lively and happy mixed age class of Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children. We really enjoy learning through a Global Curriculum and have learnt lots through exciting learning journeys including our Indian restaurant, Penguin day and Pizza making. We are so excited to find out what adventures our next journey will take us on.

Our environment is a vibrant learning space with a fantastic outdoor area accessible for use all day with mud kitchens, literacy and maths shed, sand pits, water and many fabulous stimulating and exciting areas of play and development.

Inside consists of different areas depending on the child’s learning including an investigation area, construction area, creative area and reading area. We strongly believe that all children learn in different ways and the classroom supports this with these areas of learning to ensure all children receive an amazing education.

We enjoy working in small groups with different adults during the day but also get lots of opportunities to work independently, choosing the activities we do but also making sure we complete our 'must do' tasks.

We love working together as a class and really enjoy it when we get to work with the big children in class two. They do a great job of looking after us at lunchtime and playtime and also help us sometimes with our work. 

We are all lovely friends in Class One and use the schools values to care for each other. We strive to do our best at all times and be the best we can be!

It is important to us for the children themselves to have a voice about their environment and learning.
