Bradgate Class

Bradgate class has all of our Year 2 children and some of our Year 1 pupils. In Bradgate we recognise the importance of learning through exploration and play, yet also develop children’s independence through more formal sessions too. Key Stage 1 is an important time for children in developing their social skills, this is why Miss Bullimore promotes kindness and helpfulness at all times. We also want children to give everything a go, it does not matter if you make a mistake!

A little bit about Miss Bullimore…

I love everything crafty, you could call me the craft queen! At home you will often find me knitting or sewing on my machine. I like to bring my passion for creativity into my teaching, thinking of how to make my lessons engaging and interactive for children.

A little bit about Miss Bunting…

I really love cooking and enjoy doing this as much as possible at home. I think my best dish is a curry. When I am in school I really enjoy supporting children developing their social and emotional skills. It helps that I get a lot of practice at this with two teenage daughters! I also spend a lot of time driving my children from place to place, so I think I am becoming a very good driver!
