Phase 2 (Year 1, Year 2 & Year 3) – Phase Leader – Mr Jackson
In phase 2, we have years 1, 2 and 3. The children are transitioning from EYFS and we do incorporate a continuous provision on an afternoon in phase 2 to ensure the children are comfortable and familiar with how they learn as they move into the phase. As the children are now accessing the national curriculum, we teach Maths and English on a morning, with a focus on phonics for earlier readers. The afternoons are set aside for the wider curriculum subjects and the children will take part in lessons including art, DT, computing, history, geography, music, PE amongst many others. We really believe this is such an important phase as the children are ‘sponges’ for information at these ages and it is vital we give them the opportunities to learn and grow before they move into phase 3.
