Class 1 - Mrs Howie
Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 join Mrs Howie in Class 1. The environment is a vibrant learning space with a fantastic outdoor area accessible for use during the day with mud kitchens, sand pits, water and many fabulous stimulating and exciting areas of play and development. We strongly believe that all children learn in different ways and the classroom supports this with areas of learning to ensure all children receive an amazing education. Mrs Howie is joined by Mrs Barnes as an experienced Teaching Assistant.
Class 2 - Miss Dicks
Years 3 & 4 are taught by Miss Dicks in our lovely self contained classroom situated outside of the main school building in the playground. The class is a fabulous addition to our school, enabling us to continue offering small class sizes with fantastic learning opportunities. Mrs Harris and Mrs Reeves support the children alongside Miss Dicks. They offer a wealth of experience to ensure all children can reach or exceed their goals. The class is a busy learning environment, in which children excel and are inspired and engaged whilst accessing the curriculum.
Class 3 - Mr Watson
Years 5 & 6 are taught by Mr Watson in Class 3. Even though the classroom is more structured, in order to get the children ready for their secondary education, it also offers the children the opportunity to experience different learning zones. The children have plenty of leadership opportunities when running whole school clubs. The growth mindset approach to learning encouraged within the class, helps foster a mature, resilient learning outlook alongside a positive self-image that is key for secondary school. Mrs Dunkley and Mrs West support the children, alongside Mr Watson.
