According to Hello, once the academic term starts George will be studying a new range of core subjects.

Writing on Thomas’s Battersea website, head of lower school Helen Haslem said: “The emphasis in the Lower School is on enjoyment and this is embedded in our broad curriculum and our most important school rule of ‘Be Kind’.

“Children quickly settle into the routines and expectations of the school where the atmosphere is noticeably happy, yet stimulating in nature.”

She added: “Our foremost aim is to ensure that every child feels safe, happy and confident at school.

“We help to create an environment in which children are eager to learn and to take an active part in their own learning.”

Whilst in Year Two, George and his fellow students will learn a range of subjects including literacy, numeracy, science, swimming and music.

The extensive curriculum will also include history, geography, religious studies, french, art, ballet and computing.

Ms Haslem also stated: “By Year 2, the children become the leaders of the lower school.

“This increasing independence and maturity helps them to prepare for a smooth transition to middle school.”

He will be given ten minutes of reading each night and will have to learn different spellings each week.
