Welcome to Class 1
In Class 1 you will find Miss Coxon, Mrs Hall, Nursery and Reception children. We develop through play, child-initiated learning and adult-led activities, these build on our academic, social, emotional and physical development.
Children learn best through first-hand experiences and when they are interested and motivated to learn. In Class 1 we provide this through our stimulating indoor and outdoor environment, designed to promote independence. We use observations to help us plan around each child’s interests, skills and experiences.
I Did Nothing Today
When children come home at the end of the day,
The question they’re asked as they run out to play.
Is “Tell me what you did today?”
And the answer they give makes you sigh with dismay.
“Nothing, I did nothing today!”
Perhaps, ‘Nothing’ means that I read a book,
Or with a teacher I got to cook.
Maybe I painted a picture of blue,
Or heard a story of a mouse that flew.
Maybe I wrote in my journal myself,
Or found a great book on the library shelf.
Maybe I helped a friend today,
Or went to my favourite area to play,
Maybe today was the first time,
That my scissors found a straight line,
Maybe I sang a song right to the end,
Or worked with a special new friend.
When you’re three, four or five your heart has wings
And ‘Nothing’ can mean so many things.
