Welcome to Key Stage 1 Mrs Lee (2L) Miss Holdaway (2H) Mrs Morgan and Mrs Spiers (1MS) Miss Reed (1R)
How we are organised: 2 classess of Years 1 and 2 2 year rolling programme Creative cross-curricular Planning
Mission Statement: Key Stage One The KS1 team will respect and build on the EYFS curriculum, promote continuity and cohesion for pupils moving from the FS to KS1 and ensure a smooth transition into KS2. We aim to create and provide a safe, secure, stable, healthy, stimulating and happy environment in which children can grow in confidence and achieve their natural potential as underpinned by Every Child Matters. Key Stage One will reflect the school’s rights respecting agenda – it will be the collective responsibility of all of us to ensure that learners and our learning environment is respected. We will ensure and monitor each child’s progress, set targets and make expectations of learning and attainment explicit to pupils and stakeholders based on pupils current and future needs and on local and national standards. Our practice will be informed by the needs of today’s learning and tomorrow’s world and we will adapt and be sufficiently flexible to accommodate this so that learners will be introduced to the knowledge and skills they will require for lifelong success.
Compulsory National Curriculum subjects are the same for Key Stages 1 and 2: English Maths Science Design and technology Information and Communication Technology (ICT) History Geography Art and design Music Physical education Schools also have to teach religious education, though parents have the right to withdraw children for all or part of the religious education curriculum. In addition, schools are advised to teach personal, social and health education (PSHE).
At Key Stages 1, 2, and 3 (up to age 14), the National Curriculum is accompanied by a series of eight levels. These are used to measure your child's progress compared to pupils of the same age across the country. All schools assess pupils’ progress during the school year, You'll receive information about the level your child has reached at parent-teacher evenings and in their school report. Your child will be formally assessed at the end of Key Stage 1 (Year 2) - SATs the teacher’s assessment of your child’s progress will take account of their performance in several tasks and tests in English (Reading and Writing) and Maths. By the end of Key Stage 1, most children will have reached level 2b. More information available on the National Curriculum website
Reading to your child is just as important as listening to your child read eg bedtime stories. We try to listen to your child read at least twice a week but this is only possible if we have enough help in class. Please tell us how well your child is doing or if you would like us to change your child’s book by writing in their reading record. Coloured charts – please annotate “Story Club” Writing and spelling Children (and adults) are encouraged to use a cursive script to aid fluency in writing. Please help your child develop this useful skill. A letter explaining the way we teach writing will be sent home shortly. Phonics Spelling – some spelling homework may be sent home.
