Hello Class R, Joe and I had great fun last weekend in this tent. We watched a film, read a story and snuggled in our sleeping bags!

I think Joe Bear was tired and needed a rest before finding his next hiding place. All that planting must have worn him out.

Look where I found Joe Bear hiding! I think he was hiding from the fox cub that visits the garden sometimes.

Joe Bear helped me in the garden today. He was very good at planting.

Week 2 Plan 27.04.2020


Dear Class R

I hope that you are all well and enjoyed some of the activities this week. I have seen many photographs of what you have made, drawn or achieved this week, which is fabulous. It is great to see you all enjoying time with your family and going out for lovely walks/cycles together. 

As we say in class R, always be kind and help each other, I am sure you are all doing this!


Stay safe,

Mrs Gandersmiley

Dear Class R


I hope that you are all well and have been enjoying the Easter sunshine. I have been keeping a close eye on the plants growing and the tiny buds have now come out into the most beautiful blossom. I have filmed it to show you.


Today my walk took me through the beautiful bluebells. Maybe if you see a flower or spring blossom you could paint it or use coloured paper to make a collage. I would love to see your pictures, you can always email them to me.


Remember as we say in Class R, always be kind and help our family and friends whenever we can.

Dear Class R

I hope that you are all well and having fun while learning.


Last week I went into my garden and looked for plants that were growing, I tried to imagine that I was at Hyde Hall.

I found some tiny buds on the cherry tree , rhododendron buds and my rhubarb plant! I took some pictures to show you. Later on I stewed the rhubarb.






Enjoy your afternoon, do let me know what you have been doing.

EYFS 2019



Class R Spring Term 2020

Welcome back to school for the Spring Term.

We have lots of exciting events to look forward to.  They began with school mass to celebrate the new term. In RE our first topic is Celebrations and it has been wonderful to read all about your family celebrations in your Christmas homework.

This half term we will entertain you with our first class assembly. Be prepared to find out about ‘A Day in the Life of Class R’, showing you our many wonderful talents!

Our class topic is Weather and we will be making the most of the outside, whatever the weather, so please ensure that all wellington boots are in school.

In March we will go to Hyde Hall, where we have an amazing day finding out about plants and how they grow.

We start a set of gymnastics lessons next week as well as our usual PE session and our daily mile.

If you have anything fascinating at home that you would like to show in school, please bring it in on a Wednesday to talk about. For example you might have an animals tooth, an unusual item that we haven’t seen before, a fish skeleton, an amazing flower etc. This will help to broaden language,  and encourage curiosity and explanations ( all of which are EYFS expectations).

Thank you for your continued support, especially with reading and home activities.

Mrs Gander and the Class R Team
