Sand Hutton Class 1
Most children begin their Sand Hutton journey In Class One.
The Class One team is made up of Mr Andy Mills, Mrs Sue Scott and Mrs Rachael Jagger. Mrs Heather Drummond, Mrs Rosie Newstead Louth, Mrs Tapper and Mr Holmes also support lessons in Class One. The team work closely with families and other Early Years settings to ensure a smooth and a happy start to school life.
Together we support, listen to and work with children to help them learn. We believe that positive relationships and good communication play a vital part when planning for individual needs.
The Class One team appreciate that all children are different, and their learning requirements and styles are unique too. At Sand Hutton School we know that children do their best when all their physical and emotional needs are being met. We encourage children to have a positive sense of their own identity. We enable children to develop their imaginations, to get actively involved in learning and to make decisions. We also support and develop children’s creative and critical thinking, engaging them in learning from the start.
Throughout their time in Class One children learn to interact with others in a positive, constructive and respectful manner. They develop their concentration, co-operation and communication skills whilst becoming creative, confident thinkers.
In Class One we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) in the Reception year and the National Curriculum in Year One. Lessons are often play based, both inside the classroom and in our large outdoor area and we spend time each day on child-initiated activities as well as in groups on adult-led activities. Staff ensure that inside and outside spaces at the setting are fun, safe, interesting and engaging. We also love going on trips, exploring the local area and having visitors in to school.
Visitors and prospective families are very welcome to come and look around the classroom. Please get in touch if you would like to know more or have any questions about life in Class One.
