Years 1 and 2
With foundations securely in place, the children in Year 1 are now ready to become more independent in their learning. The children are taught by specialist teachers for the same subjects as Reception with addition of Spanish. Swimming for Year 1 is in the Spring Term. LAMDA lessons are available as an extra.
Confidence, independence and resilience continues to be promoted and expectations remain high as the children work towards Year 2.
The Year 2 children develop their academic and personal qualities throughout the year and act as role models for our younger children. They are taught PE, Games, Music and Spanish by specialist teachers and swim in the Autumn Term. Individual instrumental lessons as well as LAMDA lessons are available as extras.
Well-qualified Teaching Assistants work closely with the teachers in Year 1 and 2 to support and extend the children’s learning.
As with all our Year groups creativity and imagination is developed through concerts, plays and performances to the school and the wider community.
The Junior School is a happy, busy environment where we encourage our children to celebrate every achievement and where confidence, independence and resilience is promoted.
By the end of Year 2 the children are well prepared both academically and socially for the excitement and challenges of their move to the Senior School.
