Welcome to Cedar Class Page


Hi everyone!

In Cedar class we have 6 boys and 5 girls. Our teacher is called Sophie and we are very lucky to have Jane, Marianne, Vicki and our apprentice Olivia to help and support our learning. We also have a student teacher called Dan. Laura comes into our class on a Wednesday afternoon to teach PE.

Leavers Assembly 2018


Thank you so much to everyone who was able to attend our leavers assembly yesterday. The children in Cedar class have worked so hard and they were incredible during the assembly. It is safe to say a few tears were shed from staff, children and parents. We are very proud of all of the children and now it's time to celebrate our last two days together in Millstead school. Thank you for all your support.

Tree Lighting - 05.12.17

Road Safety



Cedar Class took a lovely autumn walk to the local park to look at a busy road and how we can keep ourselves safe when crossing. We used the pedestrian lights and waited for the green man before crossing. When we got to a road with no pedestrian lights or a zebra crossing, we had to stop, look and listen. We are all getting very good at recognising the best place to cross on a road.
