Years 1 & 2

Years 1 and 2 seek to maintain and foster the passion to learn, established so eagerly in reception, as the curriculum moves towards a more formal structure. The discipline of reading out loud to an adult each day is continued and a love for the written word, in all its many forms, is promoted and encouraged. They begin to take considerable pleasure in their increasing ability to record their ideas and imaginings, though they are still perfecting the art of organising those wonderful thoughts to inspire the reader. Discrete subjects are introduced, though much of the learning follows a topic based approach, enabling them, through a connecting theme, to better understand the subject associations.
