Year 1 - Dahl Class

Welcome to the Dahl Class Page.


Our Class Teacher is Mrs Maple.




Did you know we are called Dahl Class after the author Roald Dahl? We have really enjoyed reading some of his books in class including 'Fantastic Mr Fox', 'The Enormous Crocodile' and 'Esio Trot.'



Forest School Fortnight


From the 4th February - 15th February 2019 it has been Forest School Fortnight. We have taken part in such exciting activities which have involved us in using the environment to enhance our learning. We have taken part in activities such as a scavenger hunt, nest building, hot chocolate circle time, making ourselves invisible by using camouflage, enjoying a campfire and creating superhero lair's out of natural materials. We love learning outside!



Christmas in Dahl class started in when Snowy the Elf arrived all the way from the North Pole. We have enjoyed seeing where is he is every morning. We have also loved other activities such Make a Decoration morning, our Christmas assembly, parties and so much more.

Forest School


Some of us in Dahl class have taken part in Forest School sessions. We have learnt lots of new skills and how to be safe in our wildlife area. We have been shown how to use tools safely to whittle a piece of wood, ways to collect different objects from our wildlife area and how to identify any hazards that there may be in the environment. We have also used our imaginations to tell stories, find dinosaur bones and to create or own model park. We are looking forward to continuing the sessions after Christmas.

Our 2017 Ofsted inspection commented - that we still provide good quality education & a stimulating & caring environment. Individual needs are well met & children quickly grow in confidence. There is a positive culture for safeguarding & pupils said that they feel happy & settled in school.

"I am amazing. Together we are magnificent!"
