Welcome to Caterpillar Class
We are some of the youngest class in the school. We are nursery age children (3-4 years). There are 26 places in our class on a morning and afternoon. Children start at different times of the year once they are three years old. We are in a ‘pod’ with Bumblebee and Butterfly class. We are taught by Mrs Wheatley and she is helped by our higher level teaching assistant Mrs McCabe and our teaching assistant Miss Cox. We have lots of fun working on the early year’s curriculum. We have a fantastic outdoor area where we like to spend lots of time. Some of the parents in school have spent a lot of time helping our teachers make this area brighter and more interesting for us. Find out about our curriculum and long-term plans in the Our Curriculum section of our website.
We are sure there are lots of achievements which happen at home which your teachers would love to know about too! These do not have to be academic, it can be about confidence, becoming more independent or being kind to family or friends! Send these into school with your child, and we will put them into their books and learning journeys. You can download them from here Praise notes from home pdf or pick up one from school (they are always available in the main entrance or when you collect your child at the end of the day!)
Homework across the Early Years Foundation Stage consists of sharing a story book at home with a parent/carer, listening to stories and songs or looking at books independently. Your child with receive a new story book each week and complete a simple book review alongside this to share their favourite parts from the book.
