Class 1

Welcome to Class 1

My name is Mrs Leighton and I have the pleasure of being the teacher in Class 1. I have been at Curry Mallet School for 12 years, first as a teaching assistant and then as a class teacher. I am ably assisted by Mrs Rachel Cannon and Miss Riley and other teaching assistants throughout the week , who support, encourage and nurture the pupils and help provide a curriculum and learning environment rich in experiences. In Class 1 we believe that pupils who feel valued will have the confidence to develop lively, enquiring minds.

Class 1 is a mixed aged class of Reception and year 1 children. Through a combination of continuous provision and more structured activities we aim to provide a curriculum which is exciting, diverse and accessible to all. 

We are fortunate to have an amazing outdoor space solely for the use of pupils in our class and we like to make use of this in all seasons and weathers. Weekly forest school sessions further enhance our learning opportunities.

Our newest arrivals always have a Year 6 buddy to help them find their feet and guide them through their first few weeks of school. These buddies are positive role models and help us to develop the Christian values of friendship and compassion. 

We have an open-door policy and always welcome visitors to our classroom. Please come and see what we are up to and share in our amazing learning!

Class 2

Mrs Hart welcomes you to Class 2!

In our amazing class, we have children from years 2 and 3. During the  week in class 2 we are joined by several teaching assistants including Miss Parker and Mrs Piper.

Within the class, there is a strong emphasis on improving independence along with the importance of working and learning together. Throughout the year we will develop our key learning behaviours and growth mindset. This term we are learning all about the Christian value of respect, what it means to receive it and how to show it in return. We believe it is important to be a friend, be responsible, be respectful and to be our best in everything that we try and do. We will work hard to develop a love of reading – both for pleasure and for knowledge as well as improving our understanding of the other core subjects such as writing and maths. We are constantly looking for and finding links in our learning to build on our knowledge and understanding, during interesting and engaging topics. We enjoy a challenge and always try our best to meet it. Most importantly we love learning and being creative, we look forward to sharing our amazing work with you.

Class 3

Mrs Poulton welcomes you to Class 3!

Class 3 currently consists of Years 4, 5 and 6. The children are all very friendly and display strong Christian values; working well together and offering support and encouragement to their classmates. They rise well to the school’s expectation of being super role models for the younger children across the school.

My name is Mrs Poulton and I am Class 3’s teacher. This is my third year of teaching at Curry Mallet Church of England Primary School but I have over twenty-five years of teaching in Key Stage 2 in both Somerset and Dorset. I enjoy teaching all subjects but art and science must top my list of favourites!

We are assisted in the classroom by Mrs Kim Sparks who supports our leaning by taking groups in Maths and English. Additionally, we offer further support to individuals or smaller groups of the children in the afternoons.
Together, we make a great team!

We welcome parental involvement, so if you have any questions, offers of help or special skills to share with us, we would love to see you.
