Achieve through enjoyment and excellence

“Have love for one another, a tender heart and a humble mind” (1 Peter 3:8)

Enabling children to flourish and succeed

Years 1 and 2

Welcome to Class 1


This is where you will meet our wonderful Reception , Year 1 and 2 children.

In Class 1, we strive to build upon children's academic knowledge, through providing children with many opportunities for independent learning and opportunities for a greater depth of understanding. This allows the children to develop their own knowledge and opinions. Our aim is for our children to feel confident, creative and supported by adults who have skills beyond the classroom.
We use Christian Values and our character muscles to help us support and celebrate the children’s individuality, unique talents, personality and interests.
When choosing our projects, we centralise the curriculum on each child's learning styles and needs. This creates a child-led, active learning environment that nurtures every child's strengths. This enables the children to feel happy, confident and successful.
We aim to foster a real enjoyment of books and to help children become independent readers.  Both the school and home play essential parts in helping children to become competent readers. The children will experience reading throughout the day and through a wide variety of activities.
We want the children to enjoy Maths as much as we do and so we always start from where the individual child is and build on their previous successes.  As in all curriculum subjects, we strive to ensure that the individual needs of all the children are fully catered for

Therefore, when visiting Class 1, please expect to find a classroom that is active, creative and imaginative, and one that equips children with the skills they need for the growing digital lifestyle of the modern day.
Our room is an exciting, vibrant place where our children are happy, safe, and secure in their environment. Our children are keen to learn and quickly become confident, independent learners who work and play beautifully with their friends
