Rabbit class is taught by Melanie Ellis and supported by Leah Keating, our full time TA, as well as Mrs Katie Jones, who is another indispensable TA in Rabbit class.  All of our adult support workers are passionate about education and making a positive contribution to children’s lives.

Rabbit class is a mixed Reception and Year 1 class. The children enjoy free flow access to an engaging and stimulating learning environment consisting of ever changing zones that make full use of the indoor and outdoor learning spaces. These may include indoor and outdoor role play areas, number and shape exploration, an office area, craft areas, sand and water trays, Interactive Whiteboard and computers, reflection areas, book corner, small world area, construction area, messy play area.

Children engage in both independent and adult led activities which develop in response to individual needs and interests or all children. Each week, PE is taught through games and dance, both in the hall and outdoor playground. Physical development is also explored and developed in our outdoor leaning area outside the classroom, which all of the children have free flow access to.
