Years 1 and 2
At RGS Prep we are committed to developing a creative curriculum with a mixture of interesting topics, themed weeks and projects to motivate our boys in their learning. The curriculum offers a broad content of study, using the National Curriculum (Key Stage One) as a basic framework.
The combination of group work activities and high individual attention promotes appropriate learning for all children across levels of ability. KS1 pupils build upon the EYFS curriculum that was introduced in Nursery and Shell (Reception). Our boys extend their learning in many ways and are given varied opportunities to explore the curriculum. Topics are introduced with a cross curricular approach.
Our Key Stage One boys show high levels of independence, curiosity, and concentration. They are enthusiastic about coming to school and enjoy the detailed educational programmes organised to reflect their varied and imaginative needs.
The class teacher is the appointed key person for the boys’ pastoral welfare and educational progress during their time at Pre-Prep. Classroom assistants support the class teacher in this role.
