Class R


Welcome to Class R!

Mrs Mallett and Mrs Nuttall are your class teachers.
Mrs Thornton and Miss Costick are your teaching assistants.

Our doors open at 8:50am and the children leave at 3:15pm.

In the Early Years Foundation Stage children learn through a balance of both teacher led and child initiated activities.  Everything we do is based on careful observations of the children so that we can tailor the learning environment and plan activities that are engaging, motivating and exciting.
