Welcome to Class 1's information page.


This year there are 22 children in Class I: 11 Reception children

and 11 Year 1.  Class 1 is a warm and friendly place where

children are motivated to learn in an exciting, busy and purposeful

environment. The classroom is set up with many different ‘areas

of provision’ which the children can access during independent

learning time. Class 1 also has access to its own outside area.  

On Mondays the children have ‘Planet Playground’ sessions when learning activities take place outside, taking full advantage of our wonderful school grounds.  It is therefore very important that the children always have their coats and wellies with them as they go out whatever the weather!


Their teacher is Mrs Tomany for most of the week, Mrs Roberts teaches on Mondays and Mrs Ellam covers the class on Wednesday and Friday afternoons.  The children are lucky to be supported by Mrs Ellam, Mrs Liddell and Mrs Chisholm at various times throughout the week both in the classroom and for intervention programmes.  


The children work hard to become ‘Superstars’ and earn stickers and behaviour awards.  It is exciting at the end of the day when they can tell their mums and dads what they have learnt.  At the end of the week Mrs Tomany awards someone as the ‘Star of the Week’ the person who she feels has worked the hardest, put in the most effort or made a great improvement.
