(Years 1 -3 form Key Stage 1)
Specialist teachers foster creativity and wonder in our classrooms, nurturing children’s passion for learning. Our focus is to cultivate confident, independent individuals through engaging lessons across Key Stage 1. Daily literacy and numeracy classes form the core of our diverse curriculum, laying strong foundations for broader knowledge. School becomes a splendid setting where your child embarks on their initial journey into formal education.
Learning through play remains a focus in our approach throughout these year groups; nurturing a love of learning and relishing in the joy of discovery. Reception and Year 1 classrooms extend to a covered outdoor learning area, encouraging exploration, fostering camaraderie and inspiring the children’s imaginations. The wooden climbing frames, sand pits, and a mud kitchen the ample space encourages vibrant and inventive play.
Children benefit from daily phonics, reading and mathematical activities, as well as broadening their experience of all curriculum subjects. With our close proximity to the sea, the children also enjoy regular visits to the beach as part of their Beach School Curriculum.
