 Welcome to the Pine class page.

We learn through topics using a practical approach alongside the more formal and focused teaching.

Both indoors and outdoors, we have the opportunity to practice and develop new learning in a fun and stimulating way!

Class News

Our topic this half term is ‘Dinosaur Planet'. We will be using our interest in dinosaurs to find out about what animals eat, about teeth and about how to stay healthy.


Parents as Partners

It is very important to us that we work closely with parents and carers regarding the children’s development and needs.
Thank you for supporting your child in completing their homework and for reading with your child at home. This
support is vital to help them reach their full potential.
