As children move in to Year 1 we aim to support them in their independence. A focus on reading, writing and number work continues, with daily phonics lessons and an expectation that children are heard reading by an adult regularly. Children are taught by a class teacher, with a full time teaching assistant for each class. The curriculum is linked by topics so that learning is meaningful in context, with discrete subjects such as mathematics and phonics taught separately.

Each Year 1 and 2 class will be taught by the subject specialist teachers in the Games department for swimming and sport as well as French and Music.
