Year 1 and Year 2 are a fantastic group of friendly, happy and motivated pupils. The children are offered a wide range of opportunities that will enable them to reach their full potential in every aspect of school life. Underpinning all our work are our Christian values.
Teamwork is a very strong focus and children work on a regular basis in mixed ability groups to learn about team building, job sharing and collaborative planning. The Year 2 pupils are empowered by the opportunity to support Year 1 learners. Owls Class work closely with EYFS and offer excellent transition arrangements.
The teaching and learning of the curriculum in Year 1 and Year 2 is delivered in a creative and cross curricular manner. We aim to provide exciting lessons, visits and guest speakers to stimulate a natural enthusiasm to learn and develop as a whole person. There is an emphasis on why we are learning something and how it can be applied in the real life.

We had an amazing trip to Dobbies Garden Centre, where we learned lots of fantastic facts about our topic – Plants. We planted some runner beans, a pansy, played a matching seed to flower game and had a look around at all the wonderful plants.
Thank you so much to Raelene and Amy at Dobbies for a lovely day.
