The Early Years Foundation Stage of Nursery and Reception are based at Nene. The three Reception classes have the names of water birds: Herons, Moorhens and Puffins.
Key Stage 1 consists of three classes in Year 1 and Year 2. Year 1 are named after the following birds: Seagulls, Grebes and Penguins. Year 2 are called Kingfishers, Woodpeckers and Swans.
Key Stage 2 consists of 2 or 3 classes across Year 3 – Year 6. This will eventually be 3 classes in each year across Key Stage 2 when our rolling programme of 3-form entry is complete. Classes in Years 3-6 are named after the following trees: Elm, Rowan, Maple, Beech, Willow, Sycamore, Hawthorn Hazel, Chestnut and Pine.
The work undertaken may be organised in a variety of ways which result in a mixture of individual, group, class and whole year teaching. Our organisation is thoughtfully planned to ensure that children are grouped appropriately for each task. Our teachers work closely together with joint planning and assessment time so that the children have quality of provision across the year groups and Key Stages.
