In Key Stage One the children not only develop their Literacy and Numeracy skills but also have a broad curriculum that includes Art, Geography, History, Science, Music, Hungarian Culture and Physical Education. Physical development is important at this age and our children go swimming, do aikido, learn to ice skate and take part in a variety of team games.
Children learn in a variety of ways and in Key Stage One we ensure that lessons are in line with contemporary thinking of how children learn. This learning is celebrated in many different ways in their bright and colourful classrooms through displays and samples of work.
Teachers plan and collaborate to make natural and interesting links for the students. This includes inviting visitors to school, as well as organising trips to local museums and places of interests connected to their learning.
Reading homework is encouraged when the teachers deem that a child is ready and then daily practice is encouraged at home. In Year 2 the children additionally receive a small amount of Literacy and Numeracy homework.
As part of our curriculum, children in Year 2 begin to take part in our World Languages curriculum of either Hungarian for native speakers, French, or additional English language. In Year 2 our children will also attend their first overnight residential camp during the summer term.
