In Walnut class, we have 11 children who are ranging from year 5 to year 7. We learn through a mixture of academic lessons and interactive thrive sessions using the school’s holistic approach to learning. We are working really hard in all areas of learning to gain independence and improve our knowledge and skills. We always start our day with a phonics and then a walk around the Golden Mile. Every day we also enjoy snack time, listening to our class book and our Walnut wind down time at the end of the day.
