Welcome to Class One - Miss Ferguson
Early Years and KS1
Welcome to Class One. Thanks for stopping by. If you’d like to come and visit, you can find us in the old school cottage which is opposite you when you come through the school gates. Downstairs is where the Nursery and Reception children play and learn together and upstairs, you’ll find Years One and Two growing their brains and being brilliant. At the moment, we are a class of sixteen. Being such a small class enables everyone to shine! Our teachers are Miss Kessell, Ms Storey and Mrs King. Miss Kessell teaches us from Mondays to Thursdays and Ms Storey teaches us on Fridays. We are very lucky to have Mrs King helping us learn every day! Our teachers set us challenges so we know what to do to get better.
Each term, we have a new topic which ties together our whole curriculum. This means that what we learn in Art and Science has meaningful links to English and Maths, which we do every morning. For example, a recent topic has been ‘Superheroes: People Who Help Us’ which enabled us to design our own superhero snacks in Design Technology but also talk about heroes and villains in fairy tales in our English lessons. We also try to get out of the classroom as much as we can by spending time in our lovely garden and exploring the local community. Our recent trips have included Goonhilly Earth Station, Penlee Museum and Gallery and Sennen’s RNLI Lifeboat Station. We also have had lots of visitors come to see us, including the police and Central School of Drama. Aren't we lucky!?
On theatrical Thursdays, the wonderful John Brolly comes to teach us Music and Drama; we love his songs and games. We always look forward to our PE lessons with Dave Tremaine and, at the moment, we are lucky to be visiting Cape Cornwall School with Neil Gapp every other week to do gymnastics. I think our favourite bit is going on the minibus although swinging on the ropes is ace too!
We’re very lucky that Postman Pat comes to visit us every Monday morning before Phonics. He empties our post-box, which is full of our names. Whenever someone is kind or works hard, they ‘pop it in the post’ by writing their name on a slip of paper and popping it into the post-box. Pat can sometimes be very silly and takes out more than one name at a time; what’s he like?!
In Class One we work really hard as a team to earn all ten of our stars. Getting all ten is awesome! As a group, we decide on a class treat. This can be anything from a trip to the local park to an animal-themed day where we dress up and bring our pets to school.
Being in Class One is lots of fun. We all look after each other and are good friends. We’d love to see you here too if you’d like to visit. You’d be very welcome at our school.
