Years 1 & 2

The girls continue to build on core skills and quickly become fluent readers and enthusiastic writers. They take part in theme days such as Elizabethan Day and Castles Day and enjoy trips to farms, museums and places of worship. The girls are well motivated and engaged in their learning journey alongside friends. Science takes them into studies of the physical and natural world, which they explore through hands-on experiences, and they enjoy researching famous people from history.

The girls are offered a range of different clubs to extend their learning outside the classroom; bushcraft, choir, drama, dance and art clubs are particular favourites. The girls are becoming increasingly confident in computing, learning coding and creating animations.
