Welcome to Rabbit Class

Rabbit class is the home of Reception children at Little Horsted, and together with the Robins Nursery forms part of our Early Years Village. Mr Sawers is the class teacher, supported by Miss Slaughter, as well as members of the Robins team throughout the week. Ms Paton covers Mr Sawers on Thursday afternoons.

We offer a safe, purposeful learning environment where children can thrive.  We support children to become independent and to develop skills, knowledge and understanding across all areas of learning.  Our curriculum is guided by the Early Years Foundation Stage guidance documents below:

Development Matters

Phonics equips children with the skills to become successful readers and writers, by learning to hear indvidual sounds in words and linking those sounds to letters.  We follow the DFE approved Supersonic Phonic Friends scheme.
