Welcome to Amber class page. Here you will find out about what we are learning in class. Click on the links below to get a flavour of what the learning in Amber class looks like. The class charter was created as a group and it ensures that we follow our school values of Safe, Caring and Positive. Our curriculum leaflet gives you extra information about all areas of our curriculum. Pay close attention to our story map as this changes according to the story we are learning and writing in English.

 Carol service

On Friday 14th December the children will be singing in a carol service in the school hall.  In preparation for this event, please practise the songs below.


Little donkey, little donkey  On a dusty road  Got to keep on plodding onwards  With the precious load.  Been a long time little donkey  Thro' the winter's night.  Don't give up now little donkey  Bethlehem's in sight. 

Ring out those bells tonight  Bethlehem, Bethlehem.  Follow the star tonight  Bethlehem, Bethlehem. 


We three kings of Orient are Bearing gifts we traverse afar. Field and fountain, moor and mountain, Following yonder star.

O star of wonder, star of night, Star with royal beauty bright, Westward leading, still proceeding, Guide us to thy perfect Light.
