We aim to make the transition from EYFS to Key Stage 1 as smooth as possible, so when the children begin Year 1, their teachers know exactly how to develop and challenge their learning.
Each classroom has an outside area, similar to Nursery and Reception, and we aim to utilise these as much as possible, since lots of the learning is practical and centred around real resources.
Reading, Writing and Mathematics form the main focus of the curriculum and we have daily focussed lessons in the mornings. In the afternoons, we adopt a cross-curricular approach through a range of exciting topics such as ‘Where does our Queen live?’ and ‘What makes me unique?’.
The children study a variety of curriculum areas, including Science, Art, Design and Technology, RE, Music, History, Geography, PSHE and ICT in a way that is challenging and motivating. Children also have daily Phonics lessons and PE lessons twice a week.
