Year 1

Year One

In Year 1 at Leicester Grammar Junior School we know how important it is to build confidence at this stage of children’s learning.  Our children are given plenty of opportunities to succeed and flourish in the classroom.  Lessons gradually become more formal, incorporating carpet time and desk based activities alongside opportunities for paired or group work.  Our children benefit from a topic based curriculum which generates an enthusiasm for learning both within the classroom and within the extensive school grounds.    The curriculum builds on existing skills, knowledge and understanding as well as introducing new challenges to help the children on their journey towards independent learning.

The children continue to have specialist teachers for French, Music and PE as well as access to all the excellent sporting facilities on site.   Dynamic teachers deliver exciting, well planned and differentiated lessons using the latest technology and provide the children with a happy and relaxed, yet challenging environment in which to work, play and learn.
