Class 1

Welcome to Class One


Class 1 is the Foundation Stage Class, Nursery and Reception combined.

A well planned play-based, creative curriculum is key to our children's learning and development. Emphasis is placed on active outside learning all year round and has been developed to allow for a broad coverage of all curriculum areas.


Mrs Baxter, Mrs Wealthy, Mrs Sweet and Mrs Oakins, work together to ensure that children's learning is relevant and taught in an appropriate context that matches the different needs of our youngest children.

Autumn mid-term blog

Look at what we have been doing at school this half term!

Counting six. Looking at the pattern of six using egg boxes to emphasize the arrangement seen on dice, dominoes and playing cards.

At harvest time we found apples and raspberries growing at school. We picked them and tasted them and talked about the flavours we liked.

Using sticks that we found in the wild area we ordered by length.

Bark rubbing. We have been learning to name some of the trees on our school field and we have been exploring different textures of bark.

When we were reading 'Owl Babies' we went outside to make our own nests.

Forest School

Re-ordering numbers on the numberline outside.

The children have been learning how to use dominoes. This helps them to to be able to subitise (recognise a number without counting by looking at the pattern).

Welcome to Class 1! Everyone has been excited to get back and get to know each other...

We have been learning to recognise patterns which help us know how many are in a set without counting them.

We have been learning a lot from the book Owl Babies. We know lots of facts about owls now. Here is some artwork we have done this week.

There are three owl babies in the Story Owl Babies so we have been collecting sets of 3 things inside and outside...

We have been learning about how things work and why things happen.
