In Mountain Class (Year 2) we maintain the creative activities and exploration that younger children thrive on and enjoy. We also build on developing study skills and understandings that will form the cornerstone for more academic learning. In doing so we study exciting topics such as Early Peoples, Ancient India and Space and the Solar System.
Moving from Mountain Class to Ocean Class (Years 3 and 4), lower KS2, the children experience the transition from ‘infant’ to ‘junior’ level. We help the children move from ‘learning through play’ to a more formal learning style, although we always aim to make learning interesting, stimulating and enjoyable. We have particular topics at the beginning of each year that support the children in this move such as the Romans and Ancient Egypt. As the children move through Years 3 and 4 they develop their skills and abilities in recording their work to a greater degree.
