Lower School - Years 1 and 2

‘Chinthurst finds the fun in everything’

Don’t be surprised if your child becomes a superhero, a seaside explorer or a weather analyst in pursuit of verb, adjective and noun perfection. Or they may spend the morning dressing up and acting out the Great Fire of London to help their writing reach new heights of imagination and sophistication.

We frame many of our learning opportunities around a theme. These can be a few weeks long or span most of the term but emersion in these topics will bring your child’s learning alive.

In Maths, we believe that problem solving is the best root to becoming a marvellous mathematician. Strong foundations of understanding are a springboard for exploration and your child will have fun applying the operations they have learnt to different contexts and investigating all possible outcomes.

The weekly timetable also has an exciting mix of Music, Drama, Languages, Computing, Games and PE, all taught by enthusiastic specialist teachers giving the children a broad and rich school experience.
