Key Stage 1

In Key Stage 1 firm foundations are laid in literacy and numeracy and these form an important part of the timetable. Pupils are extended and supported in their work by their teachers and classroom assistants.

A variety of strategies is used to develop and extend reading skills. The girls have access to a wide range of literature through the school and class libraries.

Basic number concepts are reinforced and extended, with the core Mathematics scheme allowing all pupils to work to their full potential.

Much of the work in Humanities and Science is based within a variety of topics and includes educational visits, as appropriate, to extend the girls' learning experiences.

Art and craft activities involve painting, collage, clay work, sewing and model making. Music is taught by specialist teachers and the girls are given opportunities to perform, for parents, in a number of concerts, productions and assemblies, all of which help to develop self-esteem and confidence.

During the week girls also have games lessons, gym and swimming sessions all taught by specialists.
