Primary (Year 1 - Year 5)
Learning in the Junior Department is based around the Cornerstones curriculum which is designed to be engaging and interactive.
National Curriculum content is covered, but we believe that a school should add more to a child’s education. Our pupils receive lessons in ballet, learn to play a musical instrument and are taught touch-typing, to broaden their skills and opportunities.
Pupils in Years 1-5 are taught mainly by their class teacher. Some subjects will be taught by different teachers, to give pupils a wider experience of teaching styles and expertise.
In the summer term, girls in Year 5 also benefit from lessons in the Senior School to help to prepare them for the move for Year 6.
Topics taught in Year 1 to Year 5 have included:
- Blue Abyss
- Bright Lights, Big City
- Gods and Mortals
- Memory Box
- Misty Mountain Sierra
- Paws, Claws and Whiskers
- Wriggle and Crawl
We carefully select the topics to ensure curriculum coverage and variety, whilst planning for skill development and knowledge acquisition.
