Star class is one of three reception classes. The children socialise and interact with each other all day. They also learn through play indoors and outdoors. Protective clothing for outdoors is provided by the school. However we do ask parents to please let their children bring in wellies and keep it here in school. This term's learning focus is on ‘Confidence’. Children will be working towards being independent in their friendships along with developing their self-confidence and managing their feelings and behaviour.We have carpet sessions where the children learn phonics and also display their work through show and tell.

Learning through play collaboratively

We will also be teaching the children the expectations and values of Athelney.


Respect: being kind and polite

Responsibility: looking after the classroom and ourselves

Resilience: Keep on trying and doing our best


Co-Operation: being helpful and joining in

Collaboration: working with others

Confidence: try new activities
