Year 1 - 3
Our Infant curriculum is stimulating and exciting for young learners, whilst establishing literacy and numeracy as the building blocks of learning.
At St. Michael’s, we are aware of the individual learning journeys of our students. Our Year One to Three classes are supported by qualified and experienced Educational Assistants until the 1:15pm each day, which enables a constant cycle of ‘small group teaching’. Students are assessed and monitored by their teachers so that they can work in small groups in the areas of Reading, Writing and Mathematics with others at a similar level of achievement in that area.
Although a wealth of learning also happens in ‘whole class’ lessons and students richly benefit from working with and alongside students of a range of abilities, small group teaching allows us to focus on their exact learning needs in Reading, Writing and Mathematics each day.
In this way, we provide a learning environment for your child that is diverse and rich, and targeted to the student’s needs at any given time.
