A huge welcome to Class 1 from myself, Miss Davies and of course the wonderful children. It’s always a huge honour and pleasure to welcome our youngest and newest members into our special school family. Brimming with excitement and wonder as they cross the school threshold, our children are always encouraged to find the magic in everyday and we certainly try our best to captivate that here at Eastnor.
We believe that young children learn best when they are active and have a real sense of ownership over their learning; therefore a child initiated approach is well nurtured both in the classroom and out on our weekly welly walks. Here at Eastnor we are able to take full advantage of the beautiful surroundings including the castle grounds, the deer park and the village itself. We are fortunate enough to have both an indoor and outdoor learning environment which are both very well used throughout the year, no matter the weather. Learning from the outdoors offers so many precious lessons that stay with the children for many years so it’s always a joy to get the children outside learning from the world around them.
Developing children’s individuality is highly valued across the school and particularly in Class 1 as each child finds their feet in their first year of school. We appreciate that every child is unique and on their own journey and we work hard to nurture everyone’s individuality. We work alongside children to build on their current knowledge and nurture their individual and shared interests. Achievements big and small are celebrated and we lovingly foster a strong home and school partnership.
Please enjoy our weekly newsletter to catch a closer glimpse at the magic that fills every part of our school, especially in Class 1. Although we may be small, we certainly make up for it with our big hearts and ideas. What a special place to be!
Miss Rachel Davies
