Year R – 2

As your child moves into infant school, the Reception team at LVS Ascot aim to encourage the children to learn, explore, play, create and think critically.

 

We believe that children learn to be strong and independent through nurturing and secure relationships with both their parents and their class teachers.

Our indoor and outdoor environments, and small classes play a key and important role in supporting and extending children’s development and learning in our positive and safe surroundings.

Our syllabus encompasses the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and includes the seven areas of learning:

  1. Personal, Social, Emotional Development
  2. Communication and Language
  3. Physical Development
  4. Literacy
  5. Mathematics
  6. Expressive Arts and Design
  7. Understanding the World

The children benefit from the continuity of having the majority of their lessons with their class teacher, supported by a full-time teaching assistant.  They also benefit from Spanish taught by a primary qualified language teacher and PE & Swimming taught by a specialist teacher.

Lunch for our Reception class is a special menu suited to our younger pupils that is delivered to them at their table in the dining hall.

Year 1 & 2 – KS1

As children move from Early Years into Key Stage 1, we aim to build upon the skills learned in Reception and we encourage them to strive consistently, to achieve beyond their own expectations in academic, sporting and co-curricular activities.

Our syllabus is broadly based on the National Curriculum core subjects;

  • English
  • Maths
  • Science
  • Humanities (History & Geography)
  • Art, Design and Technology
  • ICT
  • Physical Education & Swimming
  • Music, Dance, Drama
  • Spanish
  • Religious Education & PSHE

All of this takes place in a supportive and nurturing environment with small classes, which allows the children to explore their individuality and develop responsibility and their self-confidence within boundaries of good manners and respect for each other.

The children have their class teacher as their main teacher for most lessons in a stable and active learning environment and they benefit from Spanish taught by a primary qualified language teacher and PE taught by a subject specialist.

Across our primary school children take part in a number of off-site trips and each year a range of visitors come to share their knowledge and encourage pupils to find out more about a subject or interest.

In KS1 children have their first taste of prep (homework) and are set one piece per week in addition to regular reading and spelling tests.

Lunch in KS1 is a special menu suited to our younger pupils that is delivered to them at their table in the dining hall.
