As a team, we work hard to support each child to reach their full potential, grow in confidence and independence and to approach learning in a happy and contented manner helping them grow into well-rounded individuals.

In the mornings, we focus on Maths and Literacy (including spelling, grammar, phonics and reading).   In the afternoons, we use a topic-based approach to teach the remainder of the curriculum which includes such subjects as History, Geography, PSHCE, R.E, Science and French.  Design and Technology, Art, I.C.T and Music are taught as discrete subjects.

To aid with the transition from Foundation Stage into Year 1, children will be given child-initiated learning time each day where they will be able to facilitate their own learning inside the classroom and within the KS1 outdoor area. As the year progresses, the timetable slowly becomes a little more structured and formal. 

What to remember, when...
