Years 1 & 2
At our private school in Swansea the curriculum for Years 1 and 2 has been developed under the headings, Communication, Language and Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World, Physical Development, Expressive Arts and Personal, Social and Emotional Development. The pupils are also introduced to Spanish.
The use of mobile devices including iPads and laptops forms an integral part of the children’s learning. Work in all areas is enhanced by visits to festivals, museums, environment centres and other places of interest.
Pupils also experience the benefits of regular physical activity in the form of football, hockey, short tennis and rounders for both boys and girls. Our aim is that every pupil should enjoy taking part in sport and in so doing build up a real sense of teamwork.
Music and drama play important roles in school. There are concerts and drama performances involving pupils of all ages throughout the year.
From Year 1 children also have the opportunity to take up an instrument with Piano and Violin being the most popular.
