Little Bear Class
Little Bear class has a smaller number of pupils than the other classes at Brimscombe, taught as a single year group within the Early Years' Department (our published admission number is 15 children.) This gives pupils the best start possible, providing a personalised curriculum with a balance of structured play activities, both indoors and out, alongside the development of good basic skills in reading, writing and maths. Hands on learning is a priority for us and there are many opportunities for the children to discover and follow their own interests and strengths. They follow a slightly different timetable to the rest of the school which allow free flow play and lots of outside learning opportunities.
Reception children are taught in Little Bear Class by Mrs Churchill. Mrs Churchill is also leader of the Early Years Department. Mrs Birchley and Mrs Adamson are teaching assistants and although based in preschool, work across both classes in the Early Years Department.
