Sheep Class

Welcome to our Reception/Year 1/Year 2 Class

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 through our first two years at school we learn to be independent, inquisitive and imaginative young learners! We have a lovely classroom, filled with quality resources and inspiring activities to get stuck into, plus a brand new domestic role-play room (complete with kitchen, lounge and bedroom areas!). We are also very lucky to have a huge, wooded outdoor area where children can get cooking in our mud-kitchen, get building in our large construction area, or simply curl up and listen to our teacher, Mrs Gkikopoulos, read us a great book in our cosy reading shack. There really is something for every kind of sheep in our class!

Sheep and Whales had a fantastic trip to Cromer Museum and Cromer Beach. We learnt so much about fossils found in Cromer, handled various fossils and then went on our very own fossil hunt on the beach. The children were absolutely amazing and we had a wonderful day!  

Painting the Light

25 June 2022

This week in Sheep class we’ve been experimenting with watercolours. After practising our blending technique we really enjoyed creating our own Turner style seascapes. We had to think carefully about which colours to use in order to ‘paint the light’. Well done Sheep class!
