Key Stage One – The curriculum in Key Stage One is divided into subject areas but retains a very cross-curricular approach. The children continue to learn through first-hand experience.
Wherever possible, practical activities are incorporated within each topic area to heighten the children’s understanding of a concept. Their findings and answers are recorded in individual exercise books and folders.
Key subject areas include Mathematics, English, Science, I.C.T., History, Geography, Religious Education, Physical Education, Spanish, Music, Art and Design and Technology, PSHE.
In this key stage the children take part in a daily Mathematics and English session. These classes take place within the children’s peer groups. In English there are opportunities for phonics, reading, spelling, speaking and listening and creative writing activities. In Mathematics there is plenty of time for in-depth exploration of each concept through practical application.
Development of a pupil’s I.C.T. skills is evident throughout these academic years. The children have the opportunity to use iPads, interactive whiteboards, laptops and personal computers to aid their research, illustration, formatting and presentation.
Physical education is taught by specialist staff. The children participate in gymnastics, ball skills, dance, early team games and athletics, on the school site (astroturf, hall and field).
During their time in Key Stage One, the children will take part in exciting, relevant out of school visits, and be introduced to knowledgeable visitors which will both enrich their experience and enhance their learning journey.
“We learn a great amount but we have lots of fun along the way!”
The children also have the opportunity to join after school clubs, such as cookery, art, choir, yoga, French, computers, maths games, ICT, dance, mindfulness, recitation and sport. These take place between 3.15pm and 4.00pm daily.
