Welcome to The Excellent Elepahnt Class!

Mrs Molloy and Mrs Hopkinson are really excited to be teaching Year 1/2 and have a fantastic year full of interesting topics planned! Our Topic for Spring One is 'What a Wonderful World', which focuses on developing our geography skills through studying the continents and oceans of the world.  


We'll be using this website to share lots of information with children and parents, including galleries showcasing our learning, letters and calendar dates.

  • Individual Liberty- which country do you prefer and why?
  • Caring for our environment.
  • Respect for different cultures
