In Years 1 and 2 the children enjoy a rich and varied curriculum with a strong focus on basic skills. We make links across the curriculum, using our topics to bring colour and interest intertwined with the skills the children are developing.
The children start the day with a fast paced Read, Write, Inc. phonics or spelling session. Reading is developed in whole class sessions using high quality texts, in group reading times and through class stories. We enjoy cross-curricular writing sessions throughout the week as well as developing grammar and spelling skills. We end the week with a Big Writing session to show off our writing skills.
Our daily maths sessions use Maths No Problem, based on Singapore maths methods, and enable our children to develop secure maths skills which they can apply to different problems. Alongside this we spend time developing mental maths skills so the facts we need are at our fingertips!
Our curriculum is designed to be topic led, with children engaged by fun and creative topics, for example Superheroes, Beachcombers and The Scented Garden. If you would like to find out about our current topic then please look at our latest curriculum newsletters (below).
