Key Stage 1

At Key stage 1 we build and develop the experiences provided at Foundation stage. Throughout our lessons we aim to :

  • develop self-confidence and self-esteem;
  • develop the skills necessary to enable children to participate as contributing members of groups;
  • provide opportunities to explore, problem-solve and make decisions;
  • promote positive attitudes to learning;
  • develop children's creativity;
  • use a range of strategies, including thematic approaches, in a range of contexts which are worthwhile, challenging, relevant and enjoyable;
  • develop a greater depth of knowledge, understanding and skills through a wide range of contexts;
  • provide opportunities for children to express their individual needs and to make realistic choices.

The statutory curriculum in Key Stage 1 is set out under the following Areas of Learning:

  • Language and Literacy
  • Mathematics and Numeracy
  • The Arts
  • The World Around Us
