“Bringing Learning to Life”

Duckpuddle Class - Years 1 and 2



Welcome to Duckpuddle Class


We are a mixed age year 1 and year 2 class.


Our class teachers are Miss Clark and Mrs Hills and our teaching assistant is Mrs Bashford.  We also currently have Mrs Oram, specialist leader, supporting us in class every morning.


Each half term we have a new topic. This year we will be finding out about:


  • Food Glorious Food

  • Historical Heroines

  • Fire Fire!

  • Animal Kingdom

  • Little Explorers

  • Journeys 2


At the start of every topic we have a ‘BIG BANG.’ This is an enriching experience which gets us excited about the topic ahead.


In Duckpuddle class we learn in lots of interesting ways. We have an exciting classroom where we have many resources to help us with our learning. We all enjoy getting into character in our topic themed role-play area. We have a comfortable book corner where we can share our favourite stories and there are chrome books to help support our learning. We are able to use our entire school grounds as our outside classroom. We have a designated ‘outdoor classroom’ time each week, when we are outside whatever the weather, but we also like to explore all areas of our curriculum in our wonderful outside learning environment.


We are very fortunate to have specialist teachers for PE and Music in our school.


At Christmas and at the end of the summer term we perform whole school productions. Every child in the school has an important role to play and the singing is always amazing.


We always enjoy our learning in Duckpuddle class.
