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 11 years, first as a teaching assistant and then as a class teacher. I am ably assisted by Kim, Rachel and Sharon, who support, encourage and nuture the pupils and help provide a curriculum and learning envirmonment 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 conbination 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!
