Throughout Key Stage 1 we are committed to ensuring that our students embark on their learning journey with a sense of awe and wonder. As children progress from the Early Years curriculum and into Key Stage 1, emphasis is placed on the further acquisition of skills and understanding in literacy and numeracy.
The majority of our learning takes places in the nurturing environment of the classroom, facilitated by the classroom teacher and assistant teacher. Specialist teachers support the teaching of Music and Physical Education. Learning is meaningful and field study trips extend classroom activities.
Teaching strategies are varied according to the purpose of a task and the needs of each child. In our School, we creatively nurture each individual and our teaching reflects our belief that happy and confident children learn most effectively.
