Headteacher - Mrs V Wilson

Welcome to Emerald Class

Hello, my name is Miss Baker and I am the class teacher for Emerald class.

Emerald class is a Year 1/2 class. We work very closely with Garnet (Y2) and Diamond (Y1) classes.

Other adults that work in our classroom include:

Mrs Munro, Mrs Waggott, Mrs Cording and Mrs Powell.

What we're up to this term.....

Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic, our classroom may look a little bit different. Here are some pictures of Emerald class.

Summer 2021

Our topic this term is 'Off we go'.

This is a History topic where we will be learning all about famous explorers.  We are also going to be studying animals and humans in Science. For our Sparkling Start this term, we are asking the children to bring in a photo of a place they have visited by car, train, bus, boat or aeroplane. I wonder where you have been? 

Herbivore Day in KS1!

On Friday 8th May, KS1 had a herbivore day! In Science we have been learning all about animals and the categories they fit into. Did you know that herbivores only eat fruits, vegetables and plants? They don't eat meat at all. Everyone in KS1 chose a herbivore and designed a mask to wear on the day. In the afternoon we all made healthy fruit kebabs. You can tell from our photos that everyone had a great day. What would you put on a fruit kebab?
