Thurgoland Primary

Class R

Mrs Mackie, Mrs Bamforth and Mrs Hager make up the teaching team in Class R.

We believe that the Early Years are critical in children’s development and that the time in Reception class builds a firm basis for future learning, development and independence.  

We provide a happy, secure, well-ordered and stimulating environment, where children develop as independent individuals through interaction with sensitive adults and other children.  

Our broad and balanced curriculum extends previous learning and covers the seven areas of learning as set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework but fundamentally we learn in fun, engaging ways. This ensures that our children develop positive attitudes to learning, self-motivation,curiosity, confidence and responsibility. 

We provide our children with first hand learning experiences rooted in purposeful play in which they can become actively engaged, expressing thoughts, ideas and feelings. 

In a nut shell – we develop the whole child socially, spiritually, emotionally,physically, intellectually and aesthetically all whilst having heaps of fun!
