Welcome to Bittern Class!
We are the Reception and Year One children. We currently have 22 children in our class. We are taught on a Monday-Wednesday by Mrs MacKenzie and on a Thursday-Friday by Mr Hunter. Mrs Barrie is our teaching assistant every morning, Mrs Custance is our teaching assistant every afternoon.
We believe working as a Reception/ Year One class is a fantastic mix! We often work together. The Reception children benefit from being around the Year One children and the Year One children love sharing their learning with Reception children.
We have a wonderful outdoor area which is now fully astro-turfed, meaning we can use it all the year round. Last year, our Trust and the Friends jointly paid for our new climbing equipment which we love! It helps us build co-ordination, balance, strength and agility. We believe strongly in learning through child-led exploration, balanced with directed teaching.
Look at the fun we had on World Book Day! We dressed up as adjectives. Can you guess our words?
In March, we visited Wroxham Barns to help us learn more about farm animals, linking to our topic of Weather and Seasons. We had a fantastic day!
