Key Stage 1 (Yr 1 and Yr 2)
Welcome to Key Stage 1 (KS1) which includes Year 1 and Year 2
Our creative curriculum is taught through a series of themes which enable and encourage pupils to make links across subject areas through meaningful and relevant activities. The length of each theme is flexible and is not fixed by terms or half terms so the school learning sheets are linked to the theme and not the term.
Lessons and activities are planned to cater for the range of learning styles. Children frequently have the opportunity to express themselves not only through writing but through speaking and listening activities, role play and drama to gain a fuller enjoyment and appreciation of what they are studying.
School trips are used to support and enhance pupil’s learning and provide opportunities for enjoyment and fun and we also encourage visitors to the school to share their skills and interests. Part of our teaching is the development of pupils’ self-assessment and reflection so that with support they know how to move their learning forward.
