The P1/2 class is taught by Mrs Magowan (Monday-Wednesday) and Mrs Dunn (Thursday-Friday). The full time classroom assistant is Mrs Bell. In P1/2 children are provided with stimulating role-play, construction, creative play and other areas to enable free play and learning through play based activities and active learning.

In Literacy, Phonics are taught through songs, videos and puppets to teach sounds, as well as sand trays, play dough and paint for letter formation. This strong phonics teaching provides the basis for children's reading. Primary 1 pupils are introduced to Phonological Awareness Skills, Jolly Phonics sounds, early writing and talking and listening activities. Primary 2 the pupils revise the Jolly Phonics sounds learned in P1, learn the diagraphs and practice blending these sounds to spell and read words. They become more independent readers. Writing skills are developed by using simple dictation which focuses on high frequency and tricky words.

In Primary 1 and 2 Numeracy is taught through active learning activities to provide practical experiences of mathematical concepts. Throughout P1, children begin by sorting and matching objects. They then go on to learn numbers 1-10 by counting, making numbers in playdough, sand or paint, reading stories about numbers and other practical activities. Children also learn Measures, Shape and Space and Data Handling. In P2, the Numeracy skills taught include addition and subtraction within 10, Measures, Shape and Space and Data Handling. Children explore these concepts practically with objects, numicon and cubes to provide a strong foundation for their maths. Children learning is supported with ICT activities on Heinemann Active Maths.

The World Around Us topics in P1/2 are relevant to the children's interests and experiences. Our topics this year include People Who Help Us, Winter/Birds, Fairytales, The Farm and Minibeasts. The pupils' creative, social and emotional needs are developed through a range of Art, Music, P.D.M.U (Personal Development and Mutual Understanding) and P.E lessons.
