Welcome to Murphy class. The class is named after the popular author Jill Murphy. 
 
We have 15 children in the class this year. They are taught by Mrs Wellings (4 mornings a week and 2 afternoons), Mrs Dunwell (Friday) and Mrs Lyddon (2 afternoons). Miss Dunn is usually with us all week but unfortunately she has a broken ankle at present so we can't wait to have her back. 
 
The message behind all of our learning is 'have a go and try your hardest'. We love to see children fully emerging themselves in their chosen play - whether it's learning through role play, writing some of their letters or turning a cardboard box into a truck. 
 
Murphy children love to learn and we love to help them learn. We watch the children and wait until we can add learning to their play. We challenge the children through questioning, modelling, demonstrating and facilitating. The children immerse themselves in their play through continuous provision each morning and afternoon and we bring the class together for daily phonics, counting and handwriting activities. Children are encouraged to be creative and persistent as they learn the skill of resilience.
 
Every day is different and we like it that way!
