Mrs Pickard teaches this mixed class of 25 lovely Year 1 and Reception children.Mrs Tennant our teaching assistant is also very much involved in our daily play and learning. This class is called ‘Dentdale’ and is named after one of the nearest of the Yorkshire Dales to Ingleton.
We enjoy learning through practical play activities, wherever possible, in our light and airy classroom and attractive surrounding outdoor areas.
We follow the EYFS curriculum for Reception children and the National Curriculum for Year 1 pupils. Our curriculum activities are meaningful and fun. We value the importance of parents and carers in helping educate the children and hold regular termly activities where we invite parents in to help their children learn.
At home children are expected to read frequently, enjoy discussion and practise key concepts in maths and phonics weekly.
