Ages 5 - 7

KEY STAGE 1 CURRICULUM

Key Stage 1 covers Years 1 and 2. Building on the skills introduced in Early Years, students develop in maturity and begin experiencing more formal methods of learning. Using the National Curriculum for England, our teachers take a skills-based approach to enable children to develop their social, cultural and academic understanding.

CROSS-CURRICULAR TEACHING

We inspire students by connecting subject areas across themes and topics. For example, learning about transport involves not just reading stories, but also examining wheel mechanisms, studying the history of transport and learning simple map reading. Cross-curricular teaching encompasses literacy, science, the humanities, ICT and Design & Technology.

LITERACY

Our literacy teaching is divided into units, with students learning about fiction, non-fiction and poetry through reading, writing, grammar, phonics and spelling. Children continue to learn the mechanics of reading the printed word while developing a deeper understanding of texts through role-play, retelling, and asking and answering questions.

MATHS

We teach maths using a balance of practical and recorded activities. Students learn about numbers, shape, space and measure, and data handling. The emphasis on deepening children’s comprehension of numbers helps them gradually move away from using practical counting apparatus. We also encourage students to understand the relevance of numbers in everyday life through problem-solving.

SCIENCE

Students learn about living processes, materials, plants, animals and physical processes. They hypothesise and test out their ideas using practical and brainstorming sessions.
