Welcome to Key Stage One Year One and Year Two Miss Fletcher Miss Ward
Organisation of the Curriculum Literacy and Numeracy are taught each day. Wherever possible subjects are linked together to form a creative curriculum. Year One will be following the new curriculum and assessments whereas Year Two will be following a dual system of both the old and new curriculum. Y2 will be assessed against the National Curriculum Levels - Level 1c, 1b, 1a, 2c, 2b, 2a. Level 3 and the new assessment system. Children in Year Two will be taking their end of Key Stage two SATs in June 2015. Children will be assessed on a termly basis using the new performance indicators for each year group.
Literacy- Writing In Key Stage One children will: write in a range of genres including story, poetry, instructions, non-chronological reports etc. develop their writing to include extended sentences, consisting of appropriate and interesting vocabulary through lots of spoken language work. Children will write sentences by: saying out loud what they are going to write about composing a sentence orally before writing it sequencing sentences to form short narratives re-reading what they have written to check that it makes sense discussing what they have written with the teacher or other pupils read aloud their writing clearly enough to be heard by their peers and the teacher
Reading Children are taught to read through three daily sessions of 15 minutes, following the KRM programme and letters and sounds. Within each session children practice synthesis, segmentation, phonic and sight vocabulary. As part of this session, children practice their skills, reading with the teacher and exploring new vocabulary. Reading books will be changed at least once a week. Children will also read within a group in guided reading sessions each week. Children will complete a phonics check at the end of Year One
Numeracy In Key Stage One children: develop confidence and mental fluency with whole numbers, counting and place value. This involves working with numerals, words and the four operations, including with practical resources (for example, concrete objects and measuring tools). improve their ability to recognise, describe, draw, compare and sort different shapes and use the related vocabulary. This also involves using a range of measures to describe and compare different quantities such as length, mass, capacity/volume, time and money. recite number bonds to 10 and 20 and be precise in using and understanding place value. spell mathematical vocabulary, at a level consistent with their increasing word reading and spelling knowledge at key stage 1.
Parents could help by counting in lots of different ways – forwards, backwards, at different starting points, different speeds, in steps of 2s, 5s, 10s etc. Look at number sentences in different ways including sums with missing numbers e.g. 17 + __ = 24 Practise number bonds: for example: number bonds to 10 (5 + 5 = 10 etc) 100 (30 + 70 etc) Learn times tables facts. As a guide, the national expectation is that by end of KS1 children know 2s, 5s, 10s, and begin to know 3s and 4s. Children need to practise tables out of sequence and answer ‘quick fire’ questions to check they know the multiplication fact. Have lots of fun! Look for opportunities for practising these skills during sports, activities and board games.
Science Year 1 and 2 will cover these topics from the new National Curriculum this year Year 1 topics: Ourselves Everyday materials Plants Animals Throughout the year we will be looking at seasonal changes Year 2 topics: Uses of every day materials Sound Plants and variation Electricity Forces and movement All living things and their habitats Animals, including humans
During Key Stage One pupils observe, explore and ask questions about living things, materials and physical processes. They begin to work together to collect evidence to help them answer questions and to link this to simple scientific ideas. They evaluate evidence and consider whether tests or comparisons are fair. They use reference materials to find out more about scientific ideas. They share their ideas and communicate them using scientific language, drawings, charts and tables.
Creative Curriculum Within our creative curriculum this year we have three main topic themes Autumn Term - A moment in time- How can we make a difference? World war 1 centenary Study of a contrasting non-European country (Kenya) Textiles- learn how textiles are used in own and other’s lives. Focus on artist Pieter Bruegel (children’s games) Spring Term - Once upon a time Homes / settlements in the UK and Europe. The Victorians Queen Elizabeth II Artist focus: William Morris. (RM Colour Magic) Designing and making moving pictures/storybooks Summer Term – Let’s explore Transport (the first aeroplane flight. Old / new ships / boats) The coast (human and physical features) Artist Focus: Impressionist – Claude Monet (colour mixing, water colours – ocean colour washes, collages e.g. sea creatures) Physical Education Basket ball, football, gymnastics, dance, athletics, fielding games and swimming in the Summer Term (Year 2 only)
Why are we talking about e- safety? Cyberbullying in the news Incidents involving children at Little Aston As parents and teachers, we therefore have an important role to play in helping children and young people stay safe online and encouraging safe and responsible use of the technologies
Some of the technologies USED BY YOUNG PEOPLE BLOGS E-mail Instant messaging Gaming sites Social networking Chat Rooms Mobile phones Music Download sites Text / SMS
New technologies offer tremendous opportunities for children however there are also risks including: Some of these risks can be a continuation of the risks children and young people experience offline. However, they can be increased because many children and young people also fail to realise that the internet is a public place. cyberbullying grooming potential abuse by online predators exposure to inappropriate content racism
Are our children and young people aware of the risks?
CEOP works across the UK and maximises international links provides internet safety advice for parents and carers report facility enabling anyone to report any inappropriate or potentially illegal activity with or towards a child online
What are the key things we teach the children in school? keep your username (where possible) and password PRIVATE save any messages that have upset you so you can show them to someone who can help do not give out any personal details such as your full name, address etc. if you see anything on-line that concerns you tell a trusted adult
What are the key things we teach the children in school? never send photographs or videos to people that you don’t know in the real world never arrange to meet anyone in real life that you have met on-line show respect to others on-line
Safety Ideas FOR PARENTS Know what your children are doing online and who they are talking to. Ask them to teach you to use any applications you have never used. Help your children to understand that they should never give out personal details to online friends — personal information includes their messenger id, email address, mobile number and any pictures of themselves, their family or friends—if your child publishes a picture or video online—anyone can change it or share it.
Help your child to understand that some people lie online and that therefore it's better to keep online mates online. They should never meet up with any strangers without an adult they trust. Teach young people how to block someone online and report them if they feel uncomfortable. There are people who can help. Safety Ideas SAFETY IDEAS FOR PARENTS

Homework tasks for both classes will be set on a Friday and will be due on the following Wednesday. Children will have a homework book in which to complete their class homework. These tasks will be linked to learning in either Literacy, Numeracy or Topic work. Children should spend no longer than 30 minutes on a task. If your child hasn’t completed the task within that time, please indicate how far they have got. Year 1 will have their spelling sent home on a Wednesday and will be tested on the following Wednesday. Year 2 children will also have weekly spellings. These will be sent home on a Monday so children can practise ready for their test on the Friday. Records will be kept. Homework
In addition to the homework tasks set by the teacher, as a guide children should also spend: 10 minutes reading each day – a reading diary will be provided for parents to record comments. A separate reading record is kept at school by the class teacher for your child. 5 minutes practising their words/spellings each day. 5 minutes practising mental maths each day. 15 minutes each week practising handwriting using the cursive style.
And finally…… If we have concerns about your child’s learning and development we will always inform you, so we can work together to support your child. If you have concerns then please speak to us or arrange an appointment via the school office.
