Class 1

Welcome to Class 1!

 

I hope you have all had a wonderful Summer holiday and are as excited as I am for the start of our new academic year. I am looking forward to getting to know the children and working with them to develop their skills and interests in a positive, encouraging environment.

 

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.
