Welcome to The Marvellous Meerkats! In our class we have Reception, Y1 and Y2 pupils and we are like one big happy family. Miss Pestell is our class teacher and Mrs Parsons and Mrs Allwood are our amazing teaching assistants.  Mrs Bryant also teaches us on a Thursday morning.

In Meerkats we work hard but have lots of fun.  We work as a whole class, in groups, with a partner or on our own. Every day we have Maths, English and Phonics. We have our own personal targets to help us achieve in these lessons.

We have a great outdoor space with our own adventure playground, mini-nature area and even a mud kitchen!  We are lucky to have a separate area at the back of our classroom called ‘The Burrow’ (because we are Meerkats) and the younger members of our class can access continuous provision there.  We like to spend as much time outside as possible, whatever the weather, and Reception children go on the minibus to Bishop Sutton every Wednesday to go to Forest School.

One day each long term we visit Folly Farm and learn many things about the seasons, plants and animals to support our Science curriculum. We also try to go on as many trips as possible to bring our learning to life and have memorable experiences which helps us to learn.

We like being active and do lots of P.E every week with visiting Sports Coaches and sometimes we go to Chew Valley secondary school to do our P.E and meet children from other local primary schools.

It is great fun in Meerkats so if you are aged four, five, six or seven come along and see what makes us so special. We are a very happy, kind class and we look forward to meeting you!
