Otters Class

Welcome to the class page for Otters!

This is where you can find out about what we have been learning, our daily routines and see what Otters is all about.

Mrs Bishop is our teacher and Mrs Harle & Mrs Berry are our teaching assistants.  On a Monday, to allow Mrs Bishop to undertake her SENCO duties, the class is taught by Mr Djemal.

Please come into school wearing your P.E. kit on our P.E. days which are Thursday  & Friday.  We take part in the Daily Mile, wearing our normal school uniform, every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.  We have ICT on a Tuesday morning.

To learn more about what we will be learning during the academic year 2023-2024 please refer to the Curriculum Overview below.

We are looking forward to a fun filled year of learning!

Forest School

During the first half of the Spring Term Otters class took part in Forest Schools every Wednesday morning from 10th January 2024 to 28th February 2024 (6 sessions).  They had a wonderful time – please see pictures below!

Forest School is an ethos which encourages children’s emotional and physical development through outdoor play, activities and exploration in a woodland environment.  The philosophy of Forest School is to encourage and inspire individuals of any age through positive experiences and participation in engaging and motivating achievable tasks and activities fostering:

  • Independence
  • Confidence
  • Communication Skills
  • Self-esteem

These attributes have proved to be an effective foundation that raises academic achievement and is therefore an excellent way to support the National Curriculum and consolidate learning in the classroom.
