Welcome to Mars Class!
Mars class is a mixed class of reception and year 1 children. Our teacher is Miss Kelly, and Mrs Williams is our teaching assistant.
We are lucky to have our own outdoor learning area and enjoy playing outside come rain or shine! The ethos of our class is to develop happy, confident and independent learners who are willing to try their best and find success in their everyday learning. Every child is unique and we aim to tailor lessons to the individual needs of the children.
On this page you can find weekly updates about our learning and any special adventures we have been on. We hope you enjoy reading about our learning journey!
We are all looking forward to all children returning to school after half term.
In Mars class Miss Kelly will be the class teacher supported by Mrs Williams.
For this term, Mars class has been set up differently (following government guidelines). Expectations and procedures will be shared with the children on the first day of school.
We understand that some Y1 learners may not have been in school for quite some time, so we are approaching the first few weeks slightly differently to a 'normal' return to school.
We hope that you have all had a restful break over the half term and are looking forward to returning to learning within your classrooms.

Well done Mars Class!

Today Mars Class celebrated European Day of Languages by going to Spain.
We spent the morning exploring where Spain was on an atlas, making a Spanish flag, creating a passport and packing our bags ready to get on the plane.
We also spoke some Spanish today saying hello in Spanish 'hola' and counting to 10.
Muy bueno Mars Class! 🙂
