Year One Transition Class sees the children being introduced to our Maths scheme and starting to work in a more formal way with their language acquisition and development. There are small ratios with the teacher being supported by a team of teaching assistants for the academic challenges. The children also see a sports specialist daily and have specialist teachers for Music, a foreign language and ICT/Computing. At the conclusion of year one the teacher advises as to which group each child goes into for our acceleration programme in Maths and English.
Our lessons are always lively, with regular “energisers” to help the children reboot during longer sessions. Regular theme days and outings add pace and excitement to the day, with children working individually and in groups, pairs and teams according to their strengths and interests.
Our curriculum builds the skills children need on their journey through life, helping them make choices, experiment, explore and remember. We know that children learn in different ways and at different speeds, so we offer close support in spelling, writing, reading and maths, and help our children learn to judge their own progress, building strength and determination along the way.
The GREAT programme offers children a carousel of additional specialist subjects such as Modern Foreign Languages, Experimental Science and Speed and Agility. At this age, the children will experience a breadth of subjects before selecting from the variety of options when reaching Year Three .Find out more about GREAT at the link GREAT
