Class 2 and Class 3 run as an open unit (KS1 Unit), where the children have the opportunity to continue the learning journey they began in the Early Years.  In the KS1 Unit, we know that children learn best through practical, hands on experiences where they are able to make discoveries, see links, hypothesise and test out their ideas, in an environment where they feel confident to take risks and where learning is seen as a journey.  In short, children learn best through PLAY! We aim to foster in children the necessary skills to become life long learners with a life long love of learning!
