Living and Learning Together - Shining in our Faith

Year 1&2



Welcome to Year 1 and 2


Welcome to the Year 1 and 2 classroom, the teaching team in Year 1 and 2 includes Mrs. McGrath who is our class teacher. This term we are also joined in class by our SCITT Associate Teacher, Miss Foreman.

In Year 1 and 2 we provide the children with focused teaching and enhanced continuous provision, the activities set up in each area support the Year 1 and 2 Curriculum and provide the children with the opportunity to explore, embed and challenge their learning.         

Our curriculum topics and learning throughout the year can be found on our curriculum overview.

For further information about our topics and units of work, please see the knowledge organisers below. Every term a new knowledge organiser accompanies the work the children complete in each foundation subject. Knowledge organisers can be found in the children's work books and in the section below.
