Exe Valley


We are Maple class, years 1 and 2!  We love learning and exploring new ideas with our teacher Mrs O’Connell all week and Mrs Adams on a Thursday afternoon.  We are really lucky to have Mrs Laverick as our TA all day on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs Winter on Thursday and Friday mornings.  We also have 2 fish called Bubble and Pop which we take turns to feed and look after. 

We have lots of areas in our classroom that aim to give us the opportunity to explore and learn through Continuous Provision and set challenges, for example; Ipads and QR codes to listen to stories or use to research, small world items to create our own adventures and retell familiar ones, build and construct using wooden blocks, tubes and other items and a variety of game and resources to practise and consolidate our phonics and maths knowledge.   

As a class, we feel it is important to take care of each other and show kindness at all times.  We are proud of each other when we have achieved something new and love to see our achievements on the ‘Wow work’ display board for everyone to see.   We also celebrate achievements by receiving certificates and special messages home for our parents, which is very exciting.
