Year 1

We adopt a creative, hands-on approach in Year 1 following topics that allow children to develop their curiosity, to be inquisitive and ask questions and develop their learning.

We build on writing and comprehension skills and begin to introduce simple joins in handwriting. Our Mathematics programme covers numbers, shapes, measuring and data handling through practical, problem-solving tasks in a fun and explorative way.

The foundation subjects are taught through topic work and foster the children’s scientific, creative and thinking skills.  Music, PE, Swimming and French are taught by specialist teachers and the children take part in Forest School sessions every week.

"Throughout the school, pupils achieve well. At some ages achievement is excellent, particularly Years 1 and 2." Independent Schools Inspectorate, 2016
