Wrestlingworth Classes

Squirrel Class

We welcome our youngest children into the school in Squirrel class.

The classroom faces on to the secure playground and children enjoy indoor and outdoor activities. The staff plan activities to develop the interests of the children and to meet the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.

Acorn Class

The children move into Key Stage 1 for Years 1 and 2. The Acorns classroom is conveniently located next to the Squirrels.

Pupil work is planned to deliver the National Curriculum through cross-curricular topics with an emphasis on practical as well as written activities.

Oak Class

Oak Class is our Key Stage 2 Class and covers both Years 3 and 4 with children aged 7 to 9 years.

The year 3 children have a smooth transition from Year 2 as they have already worked with the older year group in year 1.

The Year 4 children act as role models and have monitor responsibilities

The children continue to learn the National Curriculum. Topics are carefully chosen to interest the children and opportunities arise for them to plan activities too.
