This year we are known as Matisse Class!
Ms Harwood is the class teacher supported by Mrs Cooke and sometimes Mrs Foster. A young child’s day in Matisse class is made up of many different elements: talking and listening, reading and writing activities, stories and poetry, art and craft, developing mathematical and scientific skills and knowledge, religious education, P.E. and music. These are usually organised around a particular theme (e.g., “Ourselves” or “Our School”). The topics usually last about a term and incorporate all aspects of the curriculum. The security offered by the firm yet happy setting of Matisse class enables the children’s educational foundations to be established.
Listening, learning and loving it!
