Welcome!

Mrs Daly and Mrs Tierney teach Reception and P1. They are supported by classroom assistants, Audrey and Claire.

 

Welcome to Reception and P1 class where you are sure of a learning environment that is:

  • Safe and welcoming
  • Child-centred
  • Nurturing
  • Stimulating and above all
  • Happy!

Each and every child is important to us and throughout your child's early years at school we will support them in laying firm foundations so that they develop intellectually, personally, socially, emotionally at their own pace.

In our classroom, we promote Active Learning which is skills focused and age appropriate. This practical approach enables each child to achieve their potential by encouraging them to:

  • experiment and create
  • explore and have fun
  • self-manage
  • ask questions
  • investigate and
  • evaluate.
