Welcome to Key Stage One: Sapphire Class
All three of our Key Stage One classes are mixed age, with Years One and Two learning alongside each other. This facilitates a great deal of collaborative learning and gives teaching staff the opportunity to work flexibly across the phase, to the benefit of individuals and the cohort as a whole.
With a curriculum that evolves to suit the needs of the children, we are this year excited to begin using Talk for Writing to drive progress and attainment in speaking and listening, reading and writing. The staff work hard to plan learning that threads through the wider curriculum areas, and we share our learning through our You Tube channel 'Cockburn Haigh Road Academy' as well as newsletters and showcase events in school.
As the last academic year was fractured due to the pandemic, we are committed to picking learning up from children's starting points and striving to accelerate progress and attainment through systematic teaching and learning where appropriate and hands on, experiential learning whenever possible.
Our new outdoor learning area provides children with both the opportunity to explore learning opportunity outside of the classroom environment and staff plan outdoor learning on a daily basis.
