Our Infant Classes
At Poringland, there are currently two Reception classes, two Year 1 classes and two Year 2 Classes. Every classroom offers scope for a range of creative activities. All classes have access to enclosed outdoor learning areas, which can be used every day, come rain or shine! All classes have an interactive whiteboard, and a range of iPads and laptops.
We organise our learning into half-termly topics, on a three-year cycle. This means that the children will experience each of the topics during their time in Reception and Key Stage One. In Key Stage 1, we use our topics to deliver the requirements of the National Curriculum (2014). In Reception, similar themes are with a focus on the objectives in Development Matters. Wherever possible, each topic seeks to make cross-curricular links, making learning meaningful and relevant to the experiences of our children. Our curriculum is supplemented with a wide range of educational visits and visitors to the school. We have a strong, experienced team of staff, who work closely together, sharing good practice and expertise to ensure the best possible outcomes.
At the beginning of each half term, each class sends home a curriculum overview, to share our topic and vision with parents and carers.
