Acorn Class

Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1

 

In the infants our class teacher is Mrs Rillie with Mrs Boughey and Mrs Reed as teaching Assistants.  They are all enthusiastic practitioners who love to support the children’s learning and help them to become the best they can be.

The infant class includes Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children. Having a mixed age class has many benefits from the younger children having role models to the older children learning to support and guide the younger ones.

We are very lucky to have a large classroom which is split into different areas to meet the needs of all of our learners. We have a lovely outside learning area which we are always developing and changing and we are always busy and enthusiastic about our learning.

We have lots of fun in the infants and provide a range of exciting opportunities for the children to enjoy.

Why not come along and see for yourself!
