The content of the Courses Guide for each subject is a general overview, an insight into the long-term planning undertaken by each Department, and is naturally subject to a degree of adjustment through the school year. Additional information regarding the work done in class will be communicated to you at the end of the term(s).
You will find, for most subjects, a brief description of the philosophy, aims and objectives of the teaching, as well as a table outlining the topics studied each term. This will give you an idea of the expected progression for each year group, and the amount of necessary “repetition” that takes place in order to reinforce previous learning.
The class structure is as follows:
Nursery: Caterpillars, Butterflies, Tadpoles and Frogs
Reception: Rabbits, Hedgehogs and Piglets
Year 1: Owls, Squirrels and Bumblebees
Year 2: Badgers and Otters
