Key Stage 1 (Year 1 and Year 2)


Teaching and learning in KS1 is planned to cover the National Curriculum through a cross curricular, topic style approach. 

 

Our Curriculum Overview for 2017-2018 can be found here.

     

Numeracy

The children follow the National Curriculum for Numeracy as shown in the link above.

 

Reading

Children in Year 1 and Year 2 continue to learn to read using the Letters and Sounds Programme (See EYFS link).  Our reading scheme is Oxford Reading Tree and we use Big Cat texts for some comprehension activities. Furthermore, we use the following strategies for developing independent reading and comprehension:

  • daily guided reading sessions
  • 1-2-1 reading sessions
  • reading and comprehension homework
  • in class reading opportunities
