Years 1 and 2
Welcome to Key Stage One. We are Years 1 and 2 and consist of three classes.
The team are as follows:
ROBINS– Miss Kinsella, Miss Grooby and Miss Chapman
HEDGEHOGS– Ms Wall, Miss Mills and Mrs Guest
SQUIRRELS– Mrs Walters, Mrs Sycamore, Mrs Bradley, Miss Fox and Mrs Dunne
As children progress from Reception, we are the gateway into main school. It is our aim to ensure that all of our children experience a smooth and seamless transition from the foundation unit into our key stage. We aspire to give our children the skills needed to become independent and enthusiastic learners.
We work as a team to plan and deliver a broad range of exciting, challenging and motivating lessons based on the national curriculum. In the mornings learning is focused on English and Maths. To enable children to become confident and fluent readers we teach daily phonics lessons which provide the building blocks needed to develop key reading skills. During our afternoons, topic activities provide the main focus.
