In Year 1/2, we primarily focus upon supporting students to develop an understanding of reading, writing and maths that can underpin their success throughout the rest of their primary years. Most tasks are hands on, and students are provided with plenty of 'brain breaks'.
We like students to work collaboratively, with partner tasks supporting all children to experience success, either through peer support or peer extension.
As a composite level, we structure lessons so that all children are participating in a similar task, with scope to tweak aspects of the task to challenge students of all abilities.
We also explore popular topics such as Dinosaurs, Minibeasts, The Solar System and the design and features of different toys.
