Welcome to Dragons!
We are a wonderful class of fourteen reception children. Zoe Hunter is the Dragons class teacher who is supported by Vicki Henderson our fantastic teaching assistant. On Monday afternoons and Thursday mornings Lucy Young teaches the class offering music and RE.
Our day flows with a balance between child-initiated and adult-led teaching. We very much believe in encouraging the children's interests and using this to support our planning. We ensure that there is plenty of opportunities for the children to practice what they have learnt through their play by enhancing the areas of the classroom.
We have a 'whatever the weather' philosophy and spend a great deal of time making the most of our beautiful outdoor classroom. Our children are encouraged to move between the two environments and independently change from their slippers into waterproof trousers, wellies and coats. Mrs Rendell is a trained forest school leader and the children engage in regular Forest School Sessions in our small area of woodland.
Please look at our celebration book to find out what we have been up to each week.
Our aim is to make learning as hands on and meaningful for the children as possible.
