“The structure and delivery of teaching is exceptional. The support and direction provided to my daughter provides a fantastic environment to encourage her to learn and make the process fun and engaging.”
In Year 1 a new topic is introduced each half term with the teaching and learning of other subjects being linked to the topic in some way.
This ‘topic’ approach enables children to apply their skills and transfer their knowledge from one subject to another. It supports children in making connections whilst increasing their confidence, interest and motivation when learning. Our topics are fun and engaging, ranging from The Seaside and Old Toys to Transport and Pirates!
In Years 1 and 2, we aim to promote the following:
All pupils in our Pre-Prep are encouraged to develop individual interests, explore, ask questions and have ownership of their learning journey in order to provide them with every opportunity to reach their potential. Our overall aim is to build each child’s self-esteem, confidence and independence to ensure they have the best possible start at Prince’s Mead.
