Key Stage 1
Key Stage 1 comprises Year 1 (children aged 5-6 years) and Year 2 (children aged 6-7 years). Each year group has two mixed ability classes with a maximum size of 20 pupils. Learning opportunities are enriched by regular class outings and workshops.
In Key Stage 1 the curriculum encompasses and enhances all the National Curriculum subjects: English, Mathematics, Science, Information & Communication Technology and Computing, History, Geography, Art, Design & Technology, Personal, Social and Health Education, Citizenship, Religious Education, Music, Physical Education and French.
We are keen to foster within our pupils a love of books and enjoyment of reading. Emphasis is placed on firm understanding and the development of a range of reading skills. We encourage pupils to become confident writers, expressing their ideas freely and lucidly, and developing a high standard of writing.
Pupils in each year have a weekly drama lesson; the School recognises and values the contribution which drama makes to the development of pupils’ self-confidence, imagination and creativity.
