Burton Class includes Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 and is led by Mrs Angela Oxenbury. Mrs Patten, a Higher Level Teaching Assistant, supports Mrs Oxenbury and the class also has a 1:1 Teaching Assistant, Mrs Christmas.
The classroom has a wealth of resources and activities for pupils and also includes an ever-changing role-play area, book corner and secure outdoor garden with water play stations and much more!
The class follows the EYFS for Reception and Key Stage 1 curriculum for Years 1 and 2.
The class is divided into two sub-groups (Butterflies and Caterpillars) for daily core curriculum activities, to allow learning to be tailored to suit the individual needs of the pupils. Butterflies are taught in the Phoenix room each morning and work towards the Year 2 curriculum.
Topic work is carried out over a number of years rotation with Space always being a firm favourite with staff and pupils alike!
