  1. Classes & Home Learning
  2. The Islands

Children in Years 1 & 2 work in mixed age classes within Islands.  Each morning they work on Maths, phonics & English and have daily handwriting, and number facts sessions too.  Afternoons are spent exploring topics creatively,  taking part in PE, Music and spending time outdoors. Each class has a weekly Circle Time to develop and maintain healthy relationships in class and beyond.    RE is explored in blocks across the year - meaning we can immerse ourselves in the learning.
