Just like our name sake, penguins are adaptable, sociable and work well in a team! Mrs Warren is the class teacher in Penguin class on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and Ms Fletcher teaches us all day on a Wednesday. Our lovey teaching assistants are Mrs Jenkins, Mrs Pearce and Mrs Beresford. Penguin PE days are Tuesdays and Thursdays and we change our books on Tuesdays and Fridays. Children will get the opportunity to attend forest school throughout the year either on a Monday or Friday afternoon, keep an eye out for letters in your child’s book bag informing them when it’s their turn! We have lots of fun and creative things planned for Year 1, so keep an eye out for the curriculum updates on the Curriculum Maps section of the school website, where we will load the overview of the termly plans.
Ms Fletcher is also the SEND coordinator and will also be leading intervention groups in Year 1 and 2 for children who need additional support for whatever reason. You will be informed if your child is involved in interventions.

You can see from the displays in our classrooms the variety of topics we cover. As the year progresses, the displays change. By July, you will be able to see the whole range of subjects we have covered. Our Working walls help us learn – the content builds as the term progresses.
You are welcome to come in and meet us all and see the lovely work that we do!
