Welcome to

Curious Cuckoos Class Page

 Curious Cuckoo Class is our Reception and Key Stage 1 Class. 

The class teachers are Mrs Casserly and Mrs Page. 

We are passionate about giving children the best start to their education and consider it a real privilege to welcome children into Chailey St Peters as they embark on their educational journey. 

We aim to provide children with a wealth of learning experiences guided by their own interests and are fortunate enough to have both a large indoor and outdoor learning environment.

We believe in providing children with open ended, limitless play resources with which their imagination is free to roam. For example, you won't find a box of dressing up costumes but fabric, pens and pegs in which children are free to create their own costumes for whatever role they want to take.

Term 2 in Cuckoo Class

 We will be continuing with our learning on our topic -  'PLANET EARTH SOS'

We will explore how pollution has impacted on the enviroment. We will look at the story book Leaf which will allow us to explore oceans and habitats. It will also allow us to explore ice and lead us into our seasonal work on Winter.

There are many celebrations to enjoy learning about this term also. We will use the book Little Glow to explore Bonfire Night, Diwali and of course Christmas. We will retell the Christmas story as part of our nativity and cannot wait for children to take their roles in this production.  
As always we will be following the children's interests so who knows where else our learning journey may take us?!

Our HOMe School Partnership

We know children do best when home and school work together and we truly value the role parents and carers have as thier children's primary educators. We use Class Dojo as a means of communication between school and home. Please feel free to message us directly on here should you have any questions or concerns. We will reply promptly. We will also share with you your child's individual learning as well as class news. Please also share with us what you do at home to show the child's full learning journey. 

Ideas for home learning can be found on our homework grid below.
