"I can do all things" - Philippians 4:13

Everyone is Different
Everyone is Important



Welcome to Class 1!


We are a mixed Reception, Year 1 & 2 class, led by Mrs Caroline Berkley and Mrs Branwen Thomas, assisted by Mrs Judith Page,  Mrs Jane Bagnall and Mrs Caroline Whayman.


At the beginning of each new topic we try to begin with an entry point event. Our first topic this year is "Our World". 

We will be investigating the world we live in and how we can ensure that it is well looked after through recycling, re-using, reducing waste and recovering areas that may have been damaged.

We will be using simple fieldwork and observational skills to study the geography of school and its grounds and the key human and physical features of its surrounding environment.

We will be inviting a number of guests into school to tell us information about different aspects within the topic.

In English we will be looking at newspapers and have set up our role-play area to be a newsagents. We will be visiting a local newsagents to see how a real one works.

We make use of our ‘outside’ classroom as often as possible, which allows the children to use new knowledge combined with their incredible imaginations to immerse themselves in a variety of activities to further their learning.
