All About Us



We are a mixed aged class of 10 which consists of Pre-school, EYFS and Year 1 children. 


Our class teacher is Mrs Gallacher and our class teaching assistants are Mrs Sneesby, Mrs Anderton and Miss Teale. 


We are a class of explorers and love to use the grounds of our beautiful setting to investigate and discover. In our class we love to help and support each other. 





We learn and develop through play, exploration, active learning and thinking critically. There are seven areas of learning which are divided into Prime Areas and Specific Areas. 


The Prime Areas are:

Communication and Language

Physical Development

Personal, Social and Emotional Development


The Specific Areas are:



Understanding the World

Expressive Arts and Design


The indoor and outdoor learning environments are organised into flexible and enticing provision that is carefully planned to meet every child’s learning needs and provides appropriate level of challenge.
