Buckland

Church of England Primary School

Small school, big hearts. Wise, Responsible and Kind like the Good Samaritan.

Our Year 1 and 2 children learn alongside each-other in Beech class. At first, Year 1s are supported in their transition to Key Stage 1 by the staff who have been with them throughout their beginnings in Acorns. Resources and learning space is often shared between the two classes in this setting. Children learn an increasing sense of independence in their work. Based on their sound beginnings most children make rapid progress, becoming fluent readers, writers and mathematicians.

 

They listen and focus on learning for increasing periods of time and are able to produce a greater quantity of recorded outcomes. Termly topics are used to integrate areas of learning and to stimulate and motivate learners. A teaching assistant offers generalised and specific support for individuals.

Easter Service - preparations

The focus for the Easter Service was the hymn "The Lord of the Dance". Beech Class's verse was:

I danced for the scribe and the pharisee,
But they would not dance and they wouldn't follow me.
I danced for fishermen, for James & John
They came with me and the Dance went on.

Here children in the class are preparing their fishes for the nets of James and John.
