Welcome to Rabbits Class 2023-2024


Welcome to Rabbits Class!


Rabbits class is a Year R classroom and our teacher is Miss Harvey with Mrs Thomas being our teaching assistant. We are very lucky in Year R to have an outdoor learning space as well as our classroom for our discovery time. We have time to choose our own activities as well as having guided tasks with the adults. Throughout the week we also complete two guided writing and Maths jobs.


In Rabbits we link our learning to our learning values to develop ourselves to be independent, resilient, creative and a fantastic team player!

What a great first week back in Rabbits class. We were great gymnasts in P.E where we kept on trying to hold lots of different positions for as long as possible. We also explored our new book 'Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What do you hear?' and used different instruments to make all the animal noises.
