Class 1

Welcome to Class 1!



Welcome to the start of the new academic year. We are looking forward to getting to know the children in Class 1, helping them to develop their interests and succeed in all aspects of the curriculum.


In Class 1 the children follow a structured timetable, which allows the children to be taught by our wonderful subject specialist teachers in the afternoons. During the morning sessions Mathematics and Literacy are studied. As a school, we follow the National Curriculum (NC) in all subjects. A variety of activities and strategies to suit the different learning styles are used in order stimulate and engage all learners.


An overview of the different subjects and topics taught in Class 1 can be found by following the link below.
