Welcome to Gunwalloe Class.
It has been a pleasure to welcome all the new pupils and their families to the school through our 'meet and greet' sessions and other visits for school occasions.
Our Welcome Pack details all the day-to-day information you may require.
The Photo Gallery is full of helpful images of the Gunwalloe team, members of the school staff, and pictures of the inside and outside facilities.
The school's Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Policy includes:

4th May 2023
We have packed alot into a very short week which has included listening to and sharing the story 'The Rescue Party'. We have created consertina picture books which retell the story, used adjectives to describe how the little rabbit felt and created sentences using more adjectives to make our sentences fun to read. In Maths we have been working on height. We have used the vocabulary tall, short, tallest, shortest, shorter and taller. We have measured using non standard units - cubes, in order to recognise how tall and short things are. Craft this week has been creating, from junk, musical instruments that we had previosly planned. Finally we have been watching our beans grow, recording their progress in our fact books and we are all bringing home a small cacti, which has been grown from a cacti leaf on our classroom window ledge.
