Welcome to our Reception/Year 1/Year 2 Class
Sheep class teacher is Mrs Sara Walter.
We are called Sheep class, after the parable of the Lost Sheep, and every child matters to us, just as every sheep mattered to Jesus. But don’t let our name fool you..we may start off in Reception as lambs, but we soon grow into independent, inquisitive and imaginative young learners! We have a lovely newly refurbished classroom, filled with quality resources and inspiring activities to get stuck into! We are also very lucky to have a huge, wooded outdoor area where children can get busy gardening, building in our large construction area, cooking in our mud-kitchen, or digging in our sensory area. There really is something for every kind of sheep in our class!

Art in Sheep Class
This half term we are exploring watercolour through the work of artist Paul Klee. Inspired by Klee’s abstract style, children played with bold lines, shapes and bright colours. Children really took their time and enjoyed the process. We think they did an amazing job. Well done Sheep Class!
