Sandhill White

Welcome to FS1 where your learning journey begins. The days are full of fun, laughter, lots of time outside and getting messy. We can’t wait to welcome you to our beautiful school.

Meet your teachers

Mrs Hartley

My name is Mrs Hartley and I love teaching the youngest children in school. I have been at Sandhill since 2013. I have two little girls at home so when I’m not at school playing I am enjoying days out with my family usually trips to the woods and park, especially if there is ice cream! I will see you on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. It’s going to be fun!

Mrs Farnell

My name is Mrs Farnell and I been a teacher at Sandhill since 2010. I have two little boys and we have lots of fun together. We love to go on days out and have all sorts of adventures. I love to read stories and do creative activities. I will come to play on a Monday and Thursday. I can’t wait to meet you all.

Class Information

Our class will be located to the front of foundation building (the old FS2 class). Each child has their own peg and encouraged to bring their own bag daily with a spare change of clothes. We like to get messy so extra clothes are always a good thing. Please also bring a water bottle. There’s nothing else you need, just remember to come, have fun and make beautiful memories!

Areas of Learning

In FS1 we focus on learning and themes which are important and of interest to the children. For example, the seasons, our own families and celebrations.

We also try to incorporate the children’s interests into all aspects of learning. Stories are a big part of our learning and we will have core text each term which we will regularly visit and link with our literacy, maths and other areas of learning.

Please have a look at the news section below to see photos of all the fun learning we have experienced this year. We especially enjoy our forest school learning we have once a week in the woods with Pops.
