Basset - Reception
Class Teacher - Miss Ticehurst
Following a whole-school election, the children decided to name this year's classes after dogs. The Basset is a short-legged breed of dog. The Basset is a scent hound that was originally bred for the purpose of hunting rabbits. They have an excellent sense of smell for tracking prey. The name Basset is derived from the French word bas, meaning "low", with the attenuating suffix -et meaning "small", together meaning "rather low".
