Welcome to Class 1
The Delabole learning journey begins here.
Our Reception and Year One classroom provides a warm and welcoming environment where children feel confident and ready to learn. Our Year 1’s continue to build upon and deepen their knowledge and understanding whilst being positive role models and welcoming our newest tribe members.
Within Class 1, children discover how to really belong to our school tribe- the Tribe of Delabole. The children are encouraged to be curious and explore their surroundings to become learners.
Our Learning Warrior Toolkit is an integral part of our school, it encourages the children to see themselves as learners. The Learning Toolkit is made up of eight essential dispositions for learning, to challenge themselves and question the world in which they live. We believe that these qualities are essential to promote effective, independent lifelong learning, and these skills are transferable to new experiences as the children grow up through school and beyond.
Our staff within Class 1 work hard to provide every child with a series of carefully designed experiences in which they learn through play, exploration, and the development of fundamental skills. Alongside taught, adult directed elements, every child's individual interests play a vital role in sculpting their learning journey throughout the year.
Each half term, the whole school delves into an Enquiry Project which provides the foundations of our learning. Staff in Class 1 carefully tailor the Enquiry project to meet the needs of our youngest learners, drawing on their natural wonder and curiosity in order to foster an enduring love of learning.
