Goldfinch Class

Class Overview


The Goldfinch class is our Key Stage One class. It benefits from access to its own outdoor area as well as having a smaller room called 'The Nest' within the larger classroom for small group work...ideal for the younger children who focus better in a quieter space. Children transition smoothly from our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) classroom as our provision is carefully planned to allow the children to still make some of their own choices, work independently as well as completing the 'challenges' which the children love. Teaching staff in this class have lots of experience with both EYFS and Year 3, so support and challenge for the children is well planned.
