Whales Class

Welcome to Whales Class. We get our name from the Bible story Jonah and the Whale. It is a story of compassion and never giving up - values which are very important to our class. We encourage, respect and love sharing ideas with each other!

We are made up of Year 2, 3 & 4 children and we enjoy our calm, cosy classroom which sparks our curiosity and thirst for knowledge! There is a large creative area with art, craft and construction resources. You could even snuggle up in our brand new teepee or on our comfy sofa - a great way to support our wellbeing and mental health.
