Begin working in a more formal way
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.
After school clubs are introduced at this stage to complement the after school care programme, and widens the educational experience whilst extending the range of opportunities for all the children.
