Year One

The children come into Year 1 ready to make the transition from the Foundation stage  to the National Curriculum Key Stage One. They again benefit from a small staff/pupil ratio that ensures their reading, writing, and numeracy skills are fully developed.

During Year 1 the children will begin to be taught in ability sets for numeracy and literacy which is an extremely effective way of building the children’s confidence and enabling children to progress. The children will also benefit from specialist teaching for D&T in the fully equipped DT lab, IT with the Head of ICT in the new IT suites and also PE and Dance with specialist teachers.
