Year 1

At John Rankin, children are at the heart of everything we do.

In order to develop as independent, life-long learners, we passionately believe that children deserve to experience high-quality learning experiences every day.

This year the children move on from their early years learning and begin Key Stage one national curriculum. The children focus on Phonics, maths, numeracy and literacy whilst also begging to work on topics. The children continue to enjoy both indoor and outdoor learning with covered learning areas for each of the classrooms.
