Learning in Key Stage 1
In our Key Stage One classes the children build on their learning experiences from Reception. We teach English and Maths sessions daily and the other curriculum subjects are taught through an integrated approach so that links are made between areas of learning. The children also have weekly lessons for PE, Computing, RE, Music and Life Curriculum.
Children continue to have the opportunity to learn through practical experience and play based learning but also begin more formal styles of working.
Phonics lessons are done daily and all children take part in regular individual reading and guided group reading.
Learning in Key Stage 1 is organised into a two year rolling programme. This means that children in all three classes work on the same themes each year but different themes are taught over a two year period. This ensures that all children in the three classes receive similar learning experiences but also ensures that every child covers all of the National Curriculum programmes of study for Key Stage 1 during their two years in Key Stage 1. All lessons are differentiated and children work on tasks that match their own level of learning and the next steps that they need to progress.
