Key Stage 1 and 2 Curriculum

Key Stage 1 and 2

We are excited by the design of our thematic curriculum, which has been carefully planned with our children’s development, abilities and interests at its core. The skills and knowledge which children need to develop are carefully mapped, based upon the framework of the National Curriculum, to ensure that each child is happy and confident to rise to the challenge of their learning.  Children will move up into Year 1 which will be closely aligned to the practice of their Reception Year.

 

The key aims of our curriculum are for pupils to:

 

  • learn to read and write, as well as becoming mathematicians, preparing them for the next stage of their education and allowing them to be confident individuals;
  • learn how to understand themselves and manage their emotions, understanding others better;
  • understand and explain the world around them now and from the past;
  • be active, compete in competitions and work with others in a team, learning how to be a humble winner and resilient loser;
  • be creative, practice, rehearse and perform with others;
  • understand other cultures, beliefs and languages;
  • learn about sustainable living, understanding global environmental issues.

 

Pupils will have the opportunity to do this through:

 

  • accessing high-quality English and mathematics lessons and reading a rich selection of books;
  • talking and celebrating the use of spoken language
  • using modern and high quality technology
  • RHSE, RE, values-based education, and play;
  • Understanding the World, learning and interacting with members of their community;
  • sports tournaments and other competitions across the curriculum;
  • Expressive Arts and Design, with opportunities to perform;
  • learning languages,
  • access to an enriched curriculum that includes; cooking, gardening, yoga and mindfulness
