Welcome to Buds Class

The teachers in Buds are Mrs Johnson and Mrs Saheed.

We do a lot of our learning through play and encourage children to explore their own ideas both inside the classroom and outside in the secure Buds area. The children are very happy in the environment where they develop key sills across the curriculum. The children play and learn together well.

  • Reading books will be changed on a Monday and Thursday
