Experience the difference


Prep 1 at Newlands

Prep 1 is an extremely exciting year for both children and parents! TGA Newlands offers a smaller, more-intimate class size, allowing each child to benefit from the close attention of the class teacher and provides a warm and nurturing transition from Kindergarten to P1. Throughout the year, the children cover a wide range of exciting topics and develop an excellent foundation to both letter and number formation. As the children progress, they will learn to read and write independently and learn a variety of mathematics skills including addition and subtraction within 10. 
P1 children will be introduced to:
  • The daily routines of Academy Newlands life
  • Formal reading, independent writing and mathematics
  • Topics such as All About Me, My City, All Around the World and The Sea
  • A wide range of teaching and learning strategies, including group work, practical activities, written tasks and outings
  • Weekly French, Music and PE lessons
  • Homework activities relating to class work
  • Modern IT equipment including use of class interactive whiteboard and laptops
  • A variety of active learning and structured written tasks
  • A balanced timetable of creative and academic activities
