Buttercross Class

Welcome to Buttercross Class!

Buttercross is the first class at John Clare School. It contains children from Reception and Year 1, which means that Buttercross children are age 4, 5 or 6 years old. Mrs Keymer and Mrs Donaldson are the teachers. Mrs Martin and Mrs Clarkson are the teaching assistants.

We enjoy learning through play in our indoor and outdoor workshops. In Buttercross class, we are kind to one another and we celebrate our differences.





All home learning is posted on Google classroom as well as any whole class messages and photos/events.

Reception children’s observations are on Tapestry which are shared with parents/carers at home.

Here you will find links to Buttercross Class information to help you support your child at home.
