Years 1 & 2

Instilling the confidence to be independent thinkers

In Years 1 and 2, the children build on their skills and continue to develop independence in reading, writing, speaking and listening. They enjoy practical and written work in Maths, learning the four operations of number, problem solving and measure, shape and space. Our aim with this age group is to challenge and inspire them to develop their love of learning by broadening their horizons whilst introducing a more structured curriculum. This includes lessons in ICT, Art, Science, French and Design & Technology.  In preparation for their move to Year 3, they also visit the Prep School for lessons in Music, Art and Games.

Through exciting cross-curricular topic work, the children develop an understanding of History, Geography and Art/DT and are able to explore scientific concepts through investigation, discussion and prediction in their Science work. Children enjoy a weekly swimming lesson in our 25m pool and receive regular tennis lessons.

As pupils move up through the School a close liaison with our Prep School helps them get ready for the next stage in their lives.
