Key Stage One
Year 1 children enjoy an exciting transition from the Foundation Stage to Key Stage One and the National Curriculum. We always aim to make this move as smooth as possible encouraging learning through play and more structured activities. The Year 1 curriculum builds upon and extends the experiences that children have had in Reception. Learning through play will continue to be an important part of the school day, and the children will gradually be eased into more formal learning as the year goes on so that they remain motivated, enthused and eager learners.
The children in Year 2 learn through exciting themes and love to learn in lots of different ways! We aim to make learning fun and the curriculum is designed by linking subjects together to inspire and challenge the children's thinking. During Year 2, the children build upon existing skills and concepts. These are extended by encouraging the children to explore and investigate ideas further as they become increasingly independent in their learning. The children are encouraged to become responsible members of the school and community, by demonstrating tolerance, understanding and care towards others.
By the end of Year 2, our aim is for the children to have a smooth transition into Key Stage 2 as happy, confident and enthusiastic learners, equipped with the skills and independence needed in order to continue to achieve highly.
