WELCOME TO CLASS 1!

 

Mrs Keen and Miss Van Mierlo would like to welcome you to Class 1 – the best class ever! Our classroom is a busy learning zone where creative ideas are embraced and, in a positive atmosphere, children are encouraged to take risks and understand that they can learn from mistakes. We like to get out and about,  making the most of the superb school grounds. We try and visit somewhere every term to learn even more!

                          

In Reception, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, learning through purposeful play and developing the Characteristics of Effective Learning.

In Key stage 1, we follow the National Curriculum and as a mixed-age class, we follow a rolling programme.  Take a look at our curriculum page to find out more.

Phonics and reading

We have a phonics-based approach to learning to read. Children are encouraged to read daily from a variety of schemes and take library books home for pleasure.
