Class 1

 Class 1 - Years 1 and 2

At Beaufront First School, Year 1 and Year 2 children are taught together as Class 1. We emphasize working together in different groupings regarding both ability and age. We find this approach builds self- confidence, responsibility for one’s self and raises aspirations for all.

 Y1 children follow the Y1 programmes of study for English and Maths and the Y2 children the Y2 programmes of study. This structure affords us the opportunity to teach a highly differentiated programme offering challenge and support for all.

The science curriculum, with the curricula for foundation subjects, are organised into a two year cycle of topics with appropriate differentiation for all.

We aim to prepare our pupils to be lifelong learners and to educate them to become caring citizens of a modern multicultural Britain. In seeking to cover the required skills for individual subjects specified by the 2014 National Curriculum, we have also tried to build an interesting and engaging curriculum which reflects our local area and our children’s interests. Some of the work will be presented as cross curricular “topics” or themes but individual skills and knowledge required according to the National Curriculum, are woven into the lessons.
