Ash Class

Most Saplings ‘grow’ into Ash Class when they become a Reception pupil. Home visits are also part of transition at this stage to support the settling in process. Ash Class also enjoy the opportunity to play and learn in our wonderful Early Years Unit and outdoor learning area and also spend learning time in our additional learning space called the ‘Sunshine Room’. They join in with main school for assemblies, P.E. activities as well as school meals.

Teachers respond to pupil interest and planning reflects this. Already this year they have found out more about topics such as dinosaurs, Poppy Day, elephants and vegetables!

Mrs Nicklin, our Early Years Team Leader, is a County Assessment Moderator for Early Years, which reflects the excellent practice in our Early Years Unit.
