Wenhaston Classes

Our school is organised into four classes. Our classes are named after the growth cycle of an Oak tree.

Reception is AcornsAt the start of their learning journey where firm foundations for learning can be established.

The Year 1 and Year 2 mixed class is known as Seedlings. With their roots firm, Seedlings start to expand and grow in their independence.

The Year 3 and 4 mixed class is known as Saplings. They are starting to become ready for the final stage but still require the right care and attention to thrive.

The Year 5 and 6 mixed class is known as Oaks. As established members of the school community, they continue to strengthen themselves and look towards developing the knowledge and skills they will need for the end of year 6 and beyond.

As a village school, our class sizes are small which has a positive effect on the children’s learning. 

In all classes we take time to get to know each child, and match the work to their level of ability. Our teachers meet regularly to plan together, share ideas and check how well the programmes of work are going. Acting as a team in this way brings us the benefits of combining our experience, and also gives the children a chance to work with more than just one adult.
