Welcome to Pine Class. We currently have eleven Reception age children and seven Year one children. We call ourselves 'The Squirrels' and 'The Badgers'.
My name is Miss Lock and I am the Class Teacher. Other adults who work in Pine Class are Julie Rixon and Nicky Packer who are both Teaching Assistants.
Pine class have settled in well after our long Summer break. The children have been very excited about the building work that is happening and have loved using the sparkling new toilets. Already we have had a visitor to school, John Moon, a dad and a local builder who kindly talked to the children about how to stay safe when near a building site. This led the children to lots of role play being busy builders and pretending to lay bricks, measuring up and driving diggers.
The new reception children have been amazing and have enjoyed getting to know the older children in Pine class. We have all been enjoying the book 'Where’s my teddy? 'and have thought about times when we have been lost and how we felt. We even went for a walk in the woods to experience the feelings that the little boy in the story would have felt being in the woods all alone!
The Year 1 children have been discussing Harvest as this will be our first celebration this term. They are looking forward to celebrating Harvest in the Church in October. Our two apple trees in the school garden have provided us with some juicy sweet apples which the children harvested and used to make some delicious apple muffins. We have our first trip of the year to look forward to in October. We will be visiting the Look Out in Bracknell where we will have lots of hands on experience with some science activities and some science related workshops to do with our topic ‘Marvellous Me’. The term will end with our school Nativity in St Marks Church, Peaslake. What a great term to look forward to!
