Saplings Class

Welcome to Saplings Class page.  Our Saplings class is currently made up of Nursery, Reception and Year 1 children.  These children have access to their classroom and an amazing covered outdoor area, so they can be outside whatever the weather.  These children also have Forest School sessions in our wild area each week and have use of the hall, playground, computer suite and library.  Saplings Class is taught by Miss Amy Moore and Mrs Sarah Smith.  For more information about Nursery and Reception, please click on the Admissions tab on the top menu where you will find our welcome booklet and virtual tour.
