In Years 1 and 2 we aim to develop secure foundations in all curriculum subjects. Key Stage 1 is a time when good learning habits are developed, a love of learning is nurtured and children begin to recognise their strengths and weaknesses. At Airthrie we aim to provide a lively environment and rich programme of teaching where children start to take responsibility for their own learning.
Classes are small with a high teacher to pupil ratio. In addition to the core learning of Literacy, Maths and Science the children also experience a wide range of subjects - History, Geography, Computing, French, RE, PSHE and Drama.
