Year Groups

Year One & Two

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.

KS1 Topics include




Great Fire of London


The Seaside


Wider Opportunities


Breakfast Club

Afterschool Club

Forest Schools


Wheelchair Basketball

Dance Club

KS1 Visits & Visitors

Yorkshire Wildlife Park


Puppet Show



Pets & Vets

Yorkshire Wildlife Park

Spring One – Overview

Amazing Africa!

Happy New Year everybody and we hope you have had a lovely break.

This half-term we will be exploring all things African, from artwork to a Geographical study on Kenya. We will learn all about different foods, animals, climate and differences between our cultures.

If anyone has ever been lucky enough to visit Africa then we would love to see pictures or hear from you for a real-life experience. 

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.

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.
