Apple Tree

Welcome to Apple Tree Class


Apple Tree Class is the learning space for children in Year 1 and Year 2 (Key Stage 1). For some academic years, due to the fluctuating size of our cohorts, Year 1 is split between Apple Tree and Cherry Tree classes; in this circumstance the younger Year 1 children are allocated to Cherry Tree and the Older Year 1 children are allocated to Apple Tree.
