Year 2

Whilst following the curriculum of Key Stage 1 pupils in Beech are taught to become more independent thinkers and by the end of the year they are well prepared to move on to our Junior Department.  Lessons are extended, most teaching is activity based and creative minds are still very much encouraged to thrive through weekly art lessons.

We recognise that social skills and development continue to be very important at this young age and individual personalities are maintained through outdoor play alongside a timetable offering a variety of sport, drama and music.  

We enjoy outings to the Holst Birthplace Museum and local farms as well as welcoming visitors from Gloucestershire's Fire and Rescue Service.
