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.
Mrs Cairns has set some Welly Day Challenges for you which you can find on this slide show. There are two activities, you can choose which one you would like to do or even try both! Have fun!

From our research, we realised that for every 1 square metre, Romans would use up to 10,000 … Read more
In Design Technology, this half term we have been researching, designing and making our very own purses. We used our research to design and create a roman bulla. We even practised some basic sewing skills. We found out that Romans would often have a lucky coin in their bulla so we made our own too!
This week, Whales class worked very hard to finalise the area for our fire circle. With collaboration, turn-taking, patience and a whole lot of hard work, we managed to create a wonderful space for us all to enjoy! We had a marvellous time having our hot chocolate and fizzy Friday around the fire. What a … Read more
