Welcome to Ducks!


Hello I’m Mrs Vaughan, the Class Teacher. I have been teaching in Early Years for nearly 20 years. With experience in: baby units, nurseries, pre-school, school reception year and year 1.  

I will be working closely with Miss Colbourne (the teacher in Otters) and Mrs Cook who is the Learning Support Assistant for both classes.

In Ducks and Otters we love to explore and investigate and spend lots of our time learning through play. 


Our topics over the first half term will be: Nursery Rhymes, Toys, Paddington Bear and a topic of the children’s choosing’  We will be:


  • learning new routines and developing brilliant independence skills.
  • working together to build new friendships, socialising, sharing, taking turns and playing creatively.
  • looking at number, accurate counting, problem solving and mathematical language. 
  • starting our Read, Write Inc journey, learning the sounds letters make and using ‘Fred Talk’ to read a simple word. 
  • exploring our topics, learning new vocabulary. 
  • experimenting with different ways of moving, negotiating space in the school environment.
  • finding out about the Burton Code and school’s Drivers and Christian Values. 


We are keen to work in partnership with parents this year, even though it may still be a little tricky.  Please keep an eye on MarvellousMe messages which will be sent at various points throughout the week.    

Your child will also have a Tapestry account which we would love you to add to. This is an online program to share their school experiences and development.
