KEY STAGE 1
At Key Stage 1 of the English National Curriculum, our aim is for our young students to enjoy their time at school and to build the knowledge, understanding, and values to reach their full potential in all academic and social areas of school life. We focus on English and Mathematics, daily. We teach Science, Geography, History, Art and Design through a themed “topic” that enhances students’ learning. Music, Physical Education, PSHE, Portuguese, and Computing are also essential aspects of the curriculum.
In Language and Literacy lessons, we provide a rich and stimulating environment for children to find interest and pleasure in communicating in English. We give them many experiences to build their interest in reading with fluency, accuracy, understanding, and enjoyment.
In Mathematics and Science lessons, we help students build their knowledge and understanding of these subjects in everyday life. We encourage students to relate their work to other areas of the curriculum.
