Sett Class



Hello everyone, and welcome to Sett Class! Our combined Reception and Year One class is taught by Miss Insley and supported by our amazing teaching assistants Mrs Ward, Ms Allen and Mrs Turner. 

In our classroom, learning through play is integral to our curriculum. We spend lots of time singing, exploring, doing craft activities and enjoying the outdoors. We also grow our own fruit, vegetables, herbs and wheat in our gardening area.

Every morning we enjoy a run and boot camp to wake us up ready for the day. We also use yoga and mindfulness to relax our bodies and minds after a busy day of learning and exploring. 


We have Forest School once a week and  enjoy lots of trips and visitors to enrich our curriculum. 


Here's a few examples of other things we do every day:

  • Squiggle Whilst You Wiggle
  • Daily phonics challenge based on current learning
  • Cosy storytime and singing
  • One to one reading with an adult
  • Nurture groups - learning to recognise, manage and regulate our emotions
  • Intervention groups for children who may need a little support and confidence boost
  • Topic and current learning based continuous provision



Learning for this term

Please see below an overview of our termly curriculum. We love to learn through play and often work in small focus groups so the children receive as much support as possible. 

Examples of learning

We bring learning to life in Sett Class with hands-on experiments, challenges, crafts and practising new skills.

We enjoy spending time learning and exploring outdoors to make the most of our beautiful surroundings whilst developing an understanding of and respect for nature.
