At present there are two classes:
|Howard Class||Foundation, Years 1 and 2||Children aged – rising 5 to 7|
|Worsley Class||Years 3, 4, 5 and 6||Children aged – 7 to 11|
Howard Class has access to the outside play/learning area which is well equipped for FS/KS1 children.
The children from Worsley Class also use this and the rest of the outside space for learning and play activities.
The mixed age, mixed ability nature of both classes provides us with the flexibility to meet each child’s needs and encourages the children to respect each other’s strengths and talents.
We use the village hall, opposite the school, and the village green for physical education, drama and dance lessons. The school takes part in inter-school sporting competitions as part of the Ryedale School Sports Partnership. Class 2 pupils have a block of swimming lessons each academic year.
The curriculum is planned on two (Howard Class) and four (Worsley Class) year cycles. This avoids duplication and ensures progression. We work thematically, linking the learning for each curriculum area to overarching themes. It is enriched by visitors to school and educational visits out of school and is exciting and relevant.
