Welcome to the new Infant Class page. This year, each teacher has chosen an influential figurehead as our class name. As a Church of England school, we feel that is important to give the children inspirational people to aspire to; people who have challenged the ideals of others and people who have made an impact on the lives of many. Starting this year, each topic will focus on a courageous advocate. Each class will be a courageous advocate.
The infant courageous advocate is David Attenborough. We will be known as the Little Attenborough's.
Summer 1's topic is 'Fossil Hunters'. Please take a look at the topic webs attached to see what areas of the curriculum we will be covering.
Spring 2's topic is 'Pirates'. Please take a look at the topic web's attached to see what areas of the curriculum we will be covering.

The School Day
As we see the end of the 'bubbles', school will be returning to some normality.
The gates and classroom doors will open at 8:50 and close at 9:00, after 9:00 the children will be expected to go to the office to be registered.
All the children will be having break and lunch together.
School will finish at 3:30 and children will be let out at this time and will not be coming out earlier.
We will continue with the children coming to school in P.E kits and Woodland kits on their respective days.
Navy blue/black shorts or joggers/leggings
The children can wear their school jumper or alternatively a navy blue jumper or hoodie
Children must wear long trousers (jeans/joggers/leggings), a t shirt and a long sleeved pullover. They must come in trainers and bring either wellies or walking boots. They will need a waterproof coat and waterproof trousers and, for when the weather turns colder, a hat and gloves.
Please note that the children will go to the woods in all weathers except for high wind so must have the correct clothing in school. The woods are very shaded so even on a seemingly warm day, they can get chilly.
Important Information about the week:
Green Zone (a woodland session) on a Wednesday - on this day they need warm, comfy clothes that can get grubby. Wellies and waterproofs to go over the top of their clothes can be brought in separately but please ensure everything is clearly labelled. Please ensure children have clothing that have their legs and arms covered.
P.E on a Thursday (9:15-10-15)- on this day, please send them in their P.E. clothes, NOT their uniform.
Fresh Air Thursday's - Reception will also have an outdoor session from 11-11:30 and will need to come in clothes suitable for PE and clothes you don't mind getting messy!
At the start of the academic year, the Year 6 children created a playground rota for all the juniors so that play-times are fun and physical. They are in charge of getting out all the equipment and setting the games up.
The timetable is shown below:
Friday: Fun Friday & Craft Club
Everyday, they get out lots of equipment for all the infants to play with, this equipment promotes physical and co-operative play. The Year 6's rotate throughout the week to come and play with the infants too. On Fridays, the Year 6 girls have set up a fabulous Craft Club. They plan activities which they organise and set up themselves.
There also opportunities for those who do not want to do the activities. The little play house is often used as an ice cream shop or restaurant, the tyres are used as dog sleds or just a place to chill and chat, and with all the wonderful grassy areas the mini-beasts are kept very happy with the number of bug houses created.
The atmosphere at playtime is wonderful and it is so lovely to see ALL the children interacting so well.
