Trail : home / Our Classrooms
Classes are organised in vertical groups, with children in two year groups working together. Our classes are named after woodland animals. Each class has its own teacher and classroom area, although children do work with other age ranges and other teachers on occasions - most often in subjects such as Games, Music or Project work. German is taught by a specialist teacher (Mrs Pugh) in Key Stage 2. Children work individually, in small groups, or as a class, depending on the area of study. Our Early Years class is staffed by a teacher and a teaching assistant. From Y1-6, each class has a minimum of 5 hours teaching assistant time.
In 2017/18 our classes are:
Nursery & Reception Hedgehogs Mrs Wildey, Mrs Wilby
