Welcome to Ducklings class.
We are a friendly and happy Early Years Foundation Stage class of twenty-seven children. Our teachers are Miss Knowles and Mrs Sharp. Our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Jacqui Perry, Miss Jennie Benson and Mrs Jade Pemble.
We provide a safe and nurturing learning environment where we support our children to develop a love of learning through carefully planned activities which allow them to explore, create and play,
Our topics are developed from the children’s interests and are designed to foster the children’s natural curiosity and allow them to follow their own lines of enquiry. At the moment we are learning about space and the night sky and the children have decided they would like to investigate whether aliens are real!
Our large and airy classroom has a themed role-play area, construction area, reading corner, mark making station and design space, We have our own large outdoor learning area where the children can choose to construct with our spare parts, dig and plant in our garden or role-play having a picnic in our reading garden, We also have our own Forest School which the children visit on a weekly basis where they get the opportunity to explore the natural environment, take safe risks and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate around the camp fire.
