Building on foundations
Jumping a little further, our Year 1 and 2 children move to Acorns and experience our specially designed curriculum with the introduction of a more structured programme.
Years 1 and 2 build on the core skills developed in Reception. At Crosfields we provide the tools, guidance and encouragement to facilitate your child’s academic and social growth and help them to begin to gain a love of independent learning, such as reading for pleasure.

We encourage our Year 1 and 2 children to work and play together, learning the importance of teamwork and promoting peer interaction.
At Crosfields children have the opportunity to put their learning into real world context. Educational excursions include day trips and in Year 2 children take part in a trip which includes an overnight stay, giving them the chance to put their newfound independence into practice, building confidence in a secure environment. In 2022, Year 2 children travelled to PGL Liddington in Wiltshire and similar trips are planned for 2023. All this is included in our fees.
