Zog class are a mixed KS1 and KS2 class. In Zog class we love learning through sensory and physical experiences. In our classroom provision we explore roleplay, construction, art and small world as well as activities linked to the curriculum areas English, Maths, Phonics and science. The children love making creative and varied constructions with loose parts including natural and everyday household objects.
