WELCOME TO YORK CLASS!

We are delighted to be back at the start of a new school year with so much excitement and learning ahead of us! Mrs Moseley (Class Teacher), Mrs Berry (TA) and Mrs Mansfield (TA) are the adults in the Reception Class. We are also called 'York' as each of our classes is named after a cathedral city!

Attached below is the ‘Meet and Greet’ presentation I have prepared. At this stage, we feel it iis still important to maintain safety within the school, so I have attached the slideshow electronically.  It is important that you read each slide, especially as at present it can still be difficult to speak to you at length in person.  I hope you find the presentation useful and it helps to remind you of some of the main routines and expectations in EYFS and across the school.  Please do not hesitate to ask  any questions regarding the content of the presentation and class routines. I will endeavour to answer your questions as quickly as possible.

Many thanks for taking the time to read the presentation and I hope we will be able to welcome you into our classroom soon. 

Thank you for your continued support.

October 2021 - Harvest Festival

The children in York class joined the rest of the school for the Harvest Festival Celebrations at St Andrews church in the village. This was a special time for the whole school not only in celebration of the harvest being brought safely in but also because it was the first church visit for over 18months. A big thank you to Y6 who held our hands for our first walk to church.
