Robins Class


EYFS and KS1


Our EYFS and KS1 teachers are Mrs Buchanan and Mrs Nasce.

Robins are taught by

Mrs Buchanan - Monday to Wednesday AM and 

Mrs Nasce - Wednesday PM to Friday.


The Infants classroom has direct access to an outdoor learning area for our EYFS children. The emphasis is on high quality, varied experiences through play, enabling them to discover and gain knowledge at first hand, as well as acquiring basic skills in literacy and numeracy. In this environment, our children become enthusiastic, inquisitive and independent learners. Children are well equipped with the skills and knowledge required for the National Curriculum, which they start as they move into Year 1.


In Years 1 and 2, children are taught the National Curriculum through topic-based Schemes of Work. The basic reading, writing and maths skills are applied throughout the curriculum. Children have access to a writing area, book corner, maths area, role play, art and craft area, sand or water exploration, computers and construction equipment. At the end of Year 2, pupils are given a Teacher Assessment that is submitted to the Local Authority. These assessments include observations, work samples and other informal tests.
