Key Stage 1
Key Stage 1 consists of Year 1 and Year 2 where the children’s learning is developed through a creative curriculum. Lessons are carefully planned to make learning engaging and enjoyable to encourage the children to aspire and reach their full potential.
The transition from play based learning in the Foundation Stage to a more formal learning experience in KS1 is developed by continuing to stimulate children through investigative and practical hands on activities that encourage our children to become independent learners.
We develop the children’s learning through a variety of challenges through all subject areas. We inspire, motivate and extend the children’s knowledge through exciting wow events and visits.
There are two national tests in Key Stage 1:
- In Year 1 the children undertake the ‘Phonics Screening Check’
- In Year 2 the children complete the 'Statutory Attainment Tests' (SAT's)
