The Infant Department consists of Infant 1 (Year 1) and Infant 2 (Year 2), accommodating 5 and 6 years olds respectively. Development for these children very much builds on the sound footings established during the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). Well qualified, experienced teachers support and nurture the children, helping them to consolidate their emerging skills and understanding, and leading them towards becoming confident, more independent learners. Part-time help from Teaching Assistants, and specialist teaching in P.E., French and I.C.T. provide more and varied opportunities for an engaging and stimulating curriculum.
Our specialist music teacher takes the boys for music and singing. Boys in Infant 2 are encouraged to learn the recorder, and play in ensembles at concerts and assemblies. Some of the boys may progress to playing a variety of other instruments taught by our peripatetic staff.
Lunchtime clubs are an important part of our extra curricular activity programme. For infants these include construction games, library club, meditation and sing-along. Our after school football is also very popular.
