Welcome to class 1!

 

Our teachers are called Mrs Goodall and Mrs Clarke and our teaching assistant is called Mrs Portman.
We also have other teaching assistants to help us too called Mrs Standen, Mrs Gracie, Mrs Sabin and Mrs Lawrence.

On alternate Wednesday mornings, Mrs Hinchliffe will be in our class.

 

Class 1 have had a fantastic first week and have been very busy using our indoor and outdoor learning environments and making lots of new friends!

 

Our first theme in our foundation unit is 'Marvellous Me' as we want to get to know your marvellous children! We want to help the children to settle into school life through making their learning experiences exciting and engaging.

 

To help us celebrate children's achievements outside of school, we shall be sending home 'WOW moment' slips. These slips can be completed and returned to class 1.

 

We will update the website regularly with photographs and information about our learning!

 

Mrs Goodall and Mrs Clarke
