Welcome to Puffins, our Infants unit for Foundation Stage pupils aged 4-5 and Key Stage 1 pupils aged 5-7.
The class teachers are Miss Beadle and Mrs. Carver. They are assisted by Mrs Tighe, Mrs Heneghan and Mrs Fox.
We have a wonderful infants' block which is bright and well equipped. We are lucky to be able to extend our classroom area immediately outside and use it all year round. Both the inside and outside learning environments are set up specifically to encourage independence in the way the children learn.
Inside our fully equipped classrooms we have a bank of computers, a reading area and, probably the most fun for the children, the role play area. Our role play area changes regularly to incorporate the children’s interests and the topics that we are working on, to reinforce their learning.
The children love the outside area and they can be found planting or weeding in the garden, on the climbing frame or designing games and adventures. The wild area, the unique climbing frame and the playhouse become the basis of games and stories that give free reign to their imaginations. We often find tigers and monkeys in our 'jungle', or explorers testing their physical prowess and the playhouse changes its role in life from a palace to a florist and beyond - even a hospital!
