Years 1 & 2

Through a challenging and creative curriculum we build on the strong start of Foundation.   

Our talented staff use tailored precision teaching to make each lesson challenging, exciting and engaging. Children in Year 1 and 2 are taught through a range of inspiring cross-curricular topics, enhanced with trips, experiences and visitors to bring learning to life.  

Children learn in many ways and at differing rates. While play is still an important part of a child’s development, the school day begins to follow a more structured timetable. English and Mathematics are taught daily enabling solid basic skills to be embedded. In Mathematics, children use a maths mastery approach. As well as iPads and digital learning embedded in the curriculum, Computing is taught weekly in one of our Computing suites. Spanish, Music, PE and Games are taught by specialist teachers.
