Welcome to Squirrels' class where we are all

"a child of God, wonderfully made, dearly loved and precious in his sight." Psalm 139

We chose this Psalm to remind us that we are all special to God and together we can

'Let Our Light Shine' (Matthew 5:16).Let your light 8x10.jpg

In Squirrels we enjoy learning, always try our best and never give up!

Our teacher is Miss Jones and our adults helping in class are Mrs Woolford and Mrs Taylor.

Mrs Palmer teaches us on a Thursday afternoon.

                     

We hope you have had a lovely summer break and we are so excited to welcome your children back to school!

Below you will find information about our school day and our curriculum. 

Our school day starts at 8:40am and home time is at 3:20pm.

PE days are Tuesday and Friday- please come to school dressed in your PE kit on these days.

 

        Super Squirrels start here! 

           ‘Let Your Light Shine’ (Matthew 5:16)    

               Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

At Tarporley we follow a B.O.O.K.S approach for part of our spiritual guidance and personal development.

We want to be/have:

Bravery                                        

Outward-facing                           

Opportunities                              

Knowledge and skills                 

Spirituality                                  

Through our curriculum we aim to inspire children with these attributes and always look for moments in our day where we can be BRAVE and OUTWARD-FACING, look for new OPPORTUNITIES, build on our KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS, and take time to focus on our SPIRTUALITY.

 

We are a mixed year 1 and 2 class. We will study the Key Stage 1 National Curriculum and Miss Jones will adapt the learning expectations to individuals' needs and age to make sure everyone's light shines brightly.

Miss Jones will write a blog about our learning at least twice every half term (see the tab at the top - Squirrels' blog.) and will put something class-based on Twitter once a week.
