Class 1

Welcome to Class 1!

 

 

Happy New Year! I trust you had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to the new school term.  

 

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

 

The class timetable and an overview of the topics taught in the different subjects can be found by following the links below.
