Each day in Years 1 and 2 is a new adventure, packed with hands on activities through which our learners engage in reading, writing, maths and much more.
Our small classes have privileged access to exciting learning spaces both indoors and out. Our learning often extends beyond our main classroom into our common room area for collaborative work, our design studio and science space for creative and investigative activities, and of course, into our glorious grounds. Year 1 and 2 can often be seen chalking letters, words or maths sums on the outdoor patio, or out amongst the trees discovering the delights of nature, exploring the science of seeds and plants, and the changes each season brings.
The pupils in Years one and two have the great benefit of joining specialist teaching staff in the main school to deepen their knowledge and skills in music, ICT, French, games and gymnastics, whilst giving them a flavour of prep-school life. These skills are reinforced in class each day as we learn through movement and song, access apps and games on the iPads, and practise our French speaking and listening. You will likely spot our gymnastic skills on display at playtime in one of our fantastic play spaces.
