Welcome to Class 1

Our aim is to create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in the classroom so the children feel secure, happy and confident. They are then ready to learn and are able to reach their full potential in every aspect of the curriculum.


Teaching and Learning

We take a very multisensory approach to learning and plan fun activities which will stimulate and excite the children. Learning opportunities strike a good balance between the more structured teacher-led activities, as well as allowing the children to explore their own interests both inside the classroom and in our outdoor learning area.

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage which has been recently revised and is in use from September 2012.
