We are an enthusiastic KS1 and KS2 class of 8 pupils. We enjoy learning and working together in our class team. We follow an exciting varied curriculum, which we are taught through whole class teaching, group work and one to one teaching. We are getting better at understanding and following our routines, which means we are happy and ready to learn every day!
