Welcome to Class One, the  Koalas.

Class one is a mixed class of reception and year one children.  We aim to provide an exciting, hands on curriculum through a balance of play based and adult initiated activities.  We carefully choose topics that engage the children and are linked to their interests.  The half termly newsletter gives more detail about what will be covered.

Our mission statement is:

“In Class One we try to be kind, caring and friendly to everyone.  We listen to each other and don’t leave anyone out.  We like to learn new and exciting things and always try our best!  We are safe and happy.”

We aim to work in partnership with parents and encourage them to be involved with what we are learning at school through reading and activities on the homework grid.

Mrs Tomlinson will be teaching the class on Mondays, Tuesdays and alternate Wednesday mornings. Mrs Reeve will be in class Wednesday afternoons, Thursdays, Fridays and alternate Wednesday mornings. Our main teaching assistants are Miss Shaw, Mrs West and Mrs Carmichael. We are fortunate that other staff in school will also be supporting the class at different times through the week.
