At Twyning School. we have 4 mixed age classes. Our Classes are: Rabbits, Squirrels, Hedgehogs and Owls. Historically, our PAN (Pupil Allocation Number) has always been fixed at 15 which means every year, no more than 15 new Reception children start with us. The structure is then based upon these numbers so that our classes comprise of the following year groups:
Rabbits - Reception and Year 1 children
Squirrels - Year 1 and Year 2
Hedgehogs - Year 3 and Year 4
Owls - Year 5 and Year 6
In September 2021, we will be making some temporary changes to our class structure due to larger than normal intakes of Reception children this year and in previous recent years. We will be teaching the Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children separately during the mornings only for Phonics, English and Maths. They will then rejoin their classes (Rabbits or Squirrels) during the afternoons.
