Key Stage 1

 

The Infants Class is made up of Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children.  We have a large classroom that can be split into two with a screen when we need it to be.  We also have an outdoor Early Years Area.

 

Our class teachers this year are Mrs Hack and Mrs Taylor and they are always supported by at least one teaching assistant (Miss C.Tassell).

 

This is our class page with our cross curricular work.  It shows you some of the things we have been doing over the last year.
