Key Stage 1

This is children who are 5 – 7 years old

In Years 1 & 2 children begin to have more formal literacy, numeracy and science lessons. Throughout the school children use a variety of web based and school bought software to enhance their Computing skills and learning. They are involved in History and Geography projects and develop their skills in Art, Music, PE and Drama.

Year 1 children take the national Phonics Screening Check near the end of Year 1.

Towards the end of Year 2 all children take national tests in reading, writing, spelling and maths. The results are used to inform teacher assessments, which are reported to parents at the end of the school year.
