Key Stage One
A broad and balanced curriculum provides children with the skills, knowledge and understanding they need to develop into well-rounded, informed individuals.
Welcome to KS1
As children come into Key Stage One we encourage them to be more independent. Our school day is structured to make the transition from Foundation to Key Stage One as smooth as possible. We have three classes within the key stage and we all follow the same curriculum which is differentiated according to the child’s individual needs. We encourage parents to support their children with homework and you are welcome to come in and help.
Autumn One – Overview
Welcome back- it’s great to see everyone and we really appreciate your support in helping the children to settle back into school so well.
Our Topic this half term in ‘Me and My Community’. We will be looking at ourselves, our families and where we live. We will be looking at people who help us; particularly focusing on doctors and nurses including Florence Nightingale. We will compare this to our current NHS and we feel this is especially relevant in the current climate.
If you need to contact us, please don’t hesitate in sending us a Private Yammer message. We are looking forward to a great half term ahead.
As always if you would like to speak to us at any time, please feel free to pop in. We look forward to lots of lovely learning this half-term.
KS1 Topics include
Great Fire of London
KS1 Visits & Visitors
Yorkshire Wildlife Park
Pets & Vets

Extra Information & Site Links
All children will have key words to learn on a weekly basis as well as mathematics and literacy/topic themed homework. The children are also expected to read everyday and each time the diary is filled in, the children can move along the reading stars track to gain their first 100 reads award. As we all know, reading is the key to learning.
