Welcome to Rother Class!
Rother Class are our youngest group of children, all aged between 4 and 5 years old. They are taught by Mrs Claudine Clarke (Monday – Wednesday) and Miss Megan Tonkyn (Thursday and Friday). Mrs Jackie Upfold, our wonderful teaching assistant, is with them every day of the week and remains with the children at lunchtimes too. On Wednesdays the children have Aspire PE taught by Mr Nigel Gardiner.
Our topic this term is Carnival of the Animals. We love this topic as it gives us chance to follow the children’s natural curiosity for finding out more about different animals and their habitats. We spend a lot of time getting to know the children and finding out what is important to each child, including their favourite things and interests. We are always amazed by how quickly the children settle into school life. They have continuous access to carefully planned play activities both inside and outside the classroom.
We welcome parent’s input into their child’s unique learning experience and encourage you to work closely with us in planning for and supporting the children’s next steps. Please come and see us if you have any questions or worries and do keep us informed of any special achievements that your child makes at home so we can celebrate and record them at school as well.
