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 Mrs. Sullivan and Mrs. Carver. They are assisted by Mrs. Heald, Mrs. White and Mrs Heneghan
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 under an all weather canopy. The inside and outside learning areas are set up specifically to encourage independence in the way the children learn, within the boundaries of the topic work which changes each term. You will often find children learning outside in the fresh air making the most of the outdoor games and toys.
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. Every term our role play area changes to incorporate topics that we are working on, using role play reinforces the children's learning.
The children love the outside play area and at break times they can be found in the wild area garden, on the climbing frame or opening the outdoor toy boxes. 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', the natural climbing frame becomes a mountain to test their physical prowess, the playhouse changes its role in life from a palace to a shop and beyond - even a dentist office!.
