Class 1 is a space for kids from 5 to 9 years old. It’s an environment where they can learn, create and explore new ideas. It has two rooms; the first one is for reading, playing board games, building with Lego and with other types of materials, and the second room is for lessons and arts and crafts projects.
Although a timetable is created for the kids and there is a guiding presence of a teacher in this space, children have the choice to pursue any lessons, activities or projects of their own choosing. The teacher will plan activities for the different lessons as well as support kids’ individual projects when needed.
The lessons offered in Class 1 are: English, Maths, Crafts, Dance, Drama, Spanish, Cooking, Gardening and Astronomy. Other lessons for Class 1 kids but outside this classroom space are: Art, Music, Singing, Woodwork, English as an Additional Language (EAL) and Science.
