Year R at Manea Community Primary School
Our two Year R/1 classes are located in the new part of the school building and have an excellent learning environment for children to spend their first year at school. The learning that takes place in this environment leads to children making excellent progress in this foundation year and prepares the children exceptionally well for the start of KS1. There is a successful transistion plan in place each year that supports children moving from pre-school into Year R and for the Year R children to move into Year 1 with the children in Year R already working closes in the mixed classes with our Year 1 children.
Both Mrs Stevens (Year R class teacher and Early Years leader) and Mrs Attrill (Year R Teaching Assistant) are lead practitioners for Cambridgeshire County Council which involves working in partnership with other schools to develop the practice and provision in Year R by visiting our school or for Mrs Stevens or Mrs Attrill visiting other schools.
