Years 1 and 2

In Years 1 and 2 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:

  • To develop an enthusiasm for sharing of information whilst learning the need to listen carefully to others.
  • To be able to work on short tasks until completed and move on to new tasks independently and with interest.
  • To understand and apply the school and class rules.
  • To take care of personal property.
  • To be understanding and kind to others.
  • To take a pride in the appearance of themselves and their learning.
  • To be able to dress and undress without help.
  • To be the best we can!
