Key Stage One (KS1) Curriculum Overview
In KS1, children follow the National Curriculum for all areas of learning. Subjects are taught following high quality schemes of work. Where appropriate, links are made across subjects to ensure that children can deepen their learning across the curriculum.
Children are taught phonics using 'Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised' a complete systematic synthetic phonics programme validated by the Department for Education. Phonics is taught in daily discreet lessons. The skills children learn are then applied in every aspect of the curriculum.
In addition Reading is taught through guided reading sessions with the class teacher and through individual reading.
At the end of Year one pupils are assessed using the Phonics Screening Test.
At the end of Year 2 pupils are teacher assessed using SATS.
Children enjoy a wide and diverse curriculum with rich enrichment opportunities along the way.
