We are the Ducklings!


Mrs Catterall teaches the Yellow Ducklings and Miss Lees teaches the Brown Ducklings.

Mrs Stock teaches in both classes when the teachers have their time out of class for planning, preparation and assessment.

 Miss Watmough, Mrs Richardson, Mrs Strickland and Miss Wilson are our lovely Learning Support Assistants. 

Mrs Seaward, Miss Quinn and Miss Outten are our SEND support assistants.


Our mini topics for the Summer Term will be What's in our Garden?  Seasonal changes - Spring and Summer,  Healthy Living Week, Science Week, Marvellous Minibeasts, as well as other class child-led interests.  We will also be preparing the children for the move into Year 1.


Our P.E. day will be will be on Friday each week and the children will leave their P.E kits in school.  We will continue to get dressed for P.E. at school as this ia a valuable part of their physical and personal and social development and learning.

The children will each bring home a 'choosy' book from our school library, to share with you at home.  They can return it to school and change it as often as they wish.  We will also be introducing our class book swap basket. The children can bring in a book from home that they no longer want and swap it for a new book. We hope that his will encourage them to develop and widen their love for reading. 

We will use our class story on ClassDojo to keep you informed of our most current learning and news each week.  Our weekly 'homework' activities and suggestions of how you can further support learning will be found here too.


Look below for important and useful information which will be added to throughout the year.
