"Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it" Proverb 22:6

Key Stage 1

Year 1


This class signals the introduction to the national curriculum but also builds on the goals and ethos of the early years foundation stage. It is a time when the children start to develop their abilities in every area of the curriculum, building on their experiences in reception class and extending their knowledge and understanding at a pace. They become more confident in all areas of Academy life and develop as individuals within a wider community.

We use a phonics system to teach the children literacy skills, please see below:


Year 2


Year 2 sees the children begin to be much more independent learners. They learn to discuss and evaluate their own work and become more responsible for their own learning through checking and editing.


At the end of Year 2, the children will complete end of Key Stage 1 SATs assessments in reading, writing, numeracy and science.

Curriculum Enrichment


As part of our curriculum we carefully consider the enrichment opportunities we offer the children here at the school. Alongside the curriculum we review this annually.
Unfortunately due to the ongoing situation with Covid, it has been impossible to plan enrichment when we can neither plan outdoor learning excursions nor plan to have companies/theatre groups in to deliver plays/workshops.


This will be under review and we hope to deliver some enrichment in Term 5 & 6 if circumstances allow.
