Tenacious Toads (Y1/2)

Welcome to Tenacious Toads!

In KS1 we are named after the characters from The Wind in the Willows. We chose Mr Toad, he is bubbly, determined and full of enthusiasm, just like us. In year 1/2 we are 'tenacious' in all that we do... we certainly are a class of Tenacious Toads.

In our class, Miss Guest is our teacher. She loves Wind in the Willows. In the classroom we even have her copy of the book from when she was a little girl. It is very old, from 1984!

Miss Gale works in our class too, she loves art and being creative. We look forward to her lessons.

We also have Mrs Kinsey working in Tenacious Toads too. Her favourite subject at school is Forest Schools and we cannot wait to get out into the Forest Schools Area with her, later in the year.

Our Classroom

Our classroom is full of lots of exciting things to explore and learn. We can read quietly in Our Reading Riverbank. We have stories to choose, we can use the puppets to tell stories we know or ones we have made up.

There is even a non-fiction table where we can read information texts, use the I pad and look at the globe. When we have found something interesting, we add to a leaf. Then our 'fact' is displayed in on The Tenacious Toads' Tree of Knowledge.

It is all our own work.

There are lots of other areas in our classroom too. We can write in our Writing Area. There are different things for us to write on, our favourite have been the Spiderman invitations. We love to create in the Creative Area, there are lots of things for us to cut, paint and stick. The Maths Area has lots of things for us to explore. We can count using the equipment, make up games with dice and number cards or weigh items. Our absolute favourite areas in the classroom is our the Block Play and Construction Areas. We love building different creations, story settings and seeing how high we can make a tower!

We love role play too. We have a Home Area and, this half term, we have enjoyed being doctors in the surgery. When Miss Guest isn't using her chair, we are allowed to use it to play 'schools' too. She even lets us use her things so we can teach each other.
