Welcome to KS1
Our Teachers who teach in KS1 are Mrs Riordan, Mrs Henery and Mrs Jones.
The Year of Science: this year across our Schools Partnership, we are taking part in many science challenges and competitions. You will find out more soon!
Our Key Stage One curriculum builds on the learning principles of the Early Years Foundation Stage and integrates these with the requirements of the National Curriculum Programmes of Study and ‘Come and See’ – our RE curriculum.
We want our children:-
to make the best possible progress and to achieve the highest possible standards in all areas of the curriculum
to be enthusiastic and have ownership of their learning
to encounter high quality meaningful learning experiences
to move comfortably between learning in the family and community context and learning in the school in a way that is mutually supportive
to work confidently and independently
to join up with others to pursue their learning goals
to have pride in their achievements and the highest aspirations for the future
to live by and increasingly articulate the values of a democratic community
To this end we have evolved and refined a Curriculum Map of projects and experiences which:-
- places learning in powerful contexts which reflect the fascinations of childhood
- connects skill and concept development to attractive goals
- builds on the characteristics of effective learning from the Early Years Foundation Stage to give children the maximum opportunity to become self directed learners
- draws on the expertise of families and members of the local and wider community
- allows time for necessary discrete learning and the consolidation of key skills
Curriculum structure and organisation
Year 1 and Year 2 children will tackle a theme together so that enrichment activities available to them in shared spaces are relevant to learning in all classes.
Our Curriculum Map is a two year rolling programme of half termly themes. Each theme has a goal or climax and material from the Programmes of Study is clustered around this. Some material is visited on more than one occasion because it has greater significance or because it requires more time to master.
