“In the FS, teachers have an excellent understanding of how young children can learn most effectively”.KHDA Inspection Report 2017
At Horizon, we value our sense of community and regularly create opportunities for children in the older years of the school, to come into the classrooms at FS level to help them with their reading and writing. We also invite parental involvement and welcome parents into the classroom to share their expertise and get a snapshot of what their children are doing on a daily basis.
We’ve identified continuity of learning as a key marker for success, so we pay particular attention to the transitions between year groups. Before children start FS1, we invite them for a stay and play session to help settle them in, and when it’s time for them to move up to FS2, students have jump-up days to introduce them to the next stage.
