I currently teach Foundation Stage at Cottons Farm Primary School, Class 2JG! I enjoy walking my dog and reading a wide variety of books.

Welcome to Cheerful Chimps!


Mrs Grice - FS2 Teacher

Mrs Koops - FS1 Teacher

Miss Lambert - Teaching Assistant


Welcome back!  This term our topic is all about Growth.  We will be learning the story of Jack and the Beanstalk through Talk4writing.  The children will investigate different vegetables and how plants grow.  They will be very busy planting different seeds and observing what happens.  In Maths the children will be concentrating on recognising numbers from 0 to 20 and counting different amounts of objects.  

Reading Books - Please make sure that book bags are brought to school everyday so we can change reading books regularly.

Forest School - We are starting Forest School every Tuesday Morning for FS2 children.  Please make sure they have warm clothes on, hats and gloves if weather is cold!  We will provide waterproof clothing and we have some spare wellies but if your child has their own could they bring them into school.  Don't forget to put their name inside each Wellington Boot!  Thank you!

Snack Money - We charge 50p per week for snacks.  These are healthy and are available to your child throughout the day.  We offer Toast, Crackers, Fruit, Rice Krispies, Cornflakes and Rich Tea Biscuits.  These are changed throughout the week so your child becomes independent to choose for themselves.  Fruit, Water and Milk are available everyday.  

PE - Please remember to bring in a PE kit for your child.  PE is on a Monday morning with Yogabugs and Wednesday afternoon with Mrs Grice.
