Key Stage 1

Years 1 and 2

Miss Wood and Mrs Hayes, supported ably by our Teaching Assistants, Mrs Lee and Ms Lucas, develop skills nurtured in Early Years and begin to fine tune the academic progress of children especially in Reading, Writing and Number.

We follow the New National Curriculum and our children have risen to the challenge of the increased expectations identified within it. Great emphasis is placed on practical activities which reinforce children's learning at a level they can handle. Increasingly, as children's abilities begin to become more diverse, levels of challenge are tailored to children's needs to ensure progress is made.

We actively encourage good discussion and articulation of children’s ideas, to aid their comprehension of their world through reading, writing and maths. We are pro active in developing confident and enthusiastic readers. Our success rate, in partnership with caring parents, over recent years, has grown from strength to strength.

There is still time for fun too, with practical and collaborative work being high on the agenda!
