Caring - Inspiring - Enjoying - Excelling


Year 1 and 2

Year 1 and 2 (KS1) at Bolton Primary School


At Bolton Primary School, the Year 1 and 2 children are in a class with Reception children.


In Year 1 and 2, the children enjoy learning in lots of different ways. The classroom is always busy with lots of exciting learning happening. The children transition in Year 1 really well, as when the children are Reception, they are able to observe the expectations of being a Year 1. The children are ready for a challenge. There are more teacher-led opportunities, however children continue to have opportunities to be challenged through continuous provision. The children complete challenges independently in the areas linked to learning objectives we are trying to master. This allows them to practice and show their understanding and skills from their learning in core and foundation subjects.


Year 1 and 2 children enjoy learning in lots of different ways, such as in groups, partners or on their own. They have daily sessions of English, Maths and Phonics and weekly sessions of Science, Geography, History, Design Technology, Art, Computing, Music PHSE and RE. They develop their physical skills through weekly PE sessions and games at playtimes.


The Year 1 and 2 children enjoy taking part in after school clubs, such as archery, baking, crafts and many more throughout the year with Reception children.
