Key Stage 1


Key Stage 1 starts in Year 1 and ends in Year 2. The transition from Reception into Year 1 is carefully managed to ensure that children experience consistent approaches in teaching and learning.

Children in Year 1 still have many opportunities for learning through play and many of the opportunities and routines the children are used to from their Reception year are replicated in Year 1.                                    camp1        camp2

Throughout KS1 children follow a thematic curriculum and learning is planned around literature and books. Children use the Oxford Reading Tree reading scheme and follow the Read, Write Inc phonics scheme which makes learning to read and write fun and interactive.
