Welcome to our page! The class teacher in Red class is Miss Watson. Mrs Brand is the full time teaching assistant. Mrs Arrand is also a teaching assistant in class too on a Monday and Wednesday afternoon. Our PE days this term are Monday and Wednesday. Please bring your child's PE kit into school on Monday and we send them home again on a Friday.
Our whole school theme is 'Move it!'. Our immersive classroom supports this theme and is split into two sections... a hospital and a sports stadium! We have lots of different areas to play and learn including a sports pitch, swimming pool, football goal, ambulance and hospital ward.
The Early Years Foundation Stage has 7 areas of learning. This is what we will be covering in the Summer term:
