Key Stage 1 & 2

Britain’s National Curriculum is generally split into four Key Stages, with primary school comprising Key Stages 1 and 2. The two stages help young students develop basic but important skills through a wide range of subjects.

Key Stage 1 (KS1)

The National Curriculum sets out the learning and expectations for Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2).
We carefully build on the skills the children have learnt in Foundation Stage and continue to extend and develop levels of independence.

All subjects are taught through a thematic and creative approach as we believe that learning should be meaningful and we give children the opportunity to learn in a way that is familiar and relevant to their every-day lives. It strengthens the links across English, Mathematics, Science and other topics. In English, the curriculum covers knowledge, skills and understanding through Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening. A broad range of activities are used to promote experience, reflection and improvement. Our phonics education plays an important part in the daily learning to support the children in discovering the world not only through experiences as well as through reading and writing.

Key Stage 2 (KS2)

Welcome to Key Stage 2 (KS2) which comprises Year 3 – Year 6. Our curriculum covers all the subjects set out for these Year groups by the UK National Curriculum. Our scheme of work aims to deliver cross curricular activities which provide an exciting learning experience.

Specifically, the English curriculum in KS2 covers skills in Reading and Comprehension, Writing, Speaking and Listening. Every class has a collection of high quality books from well-known authors to encourage students to read and to stimulate their writing.

Our Mathematics curriculum aims to ensure that students become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, through practice in Number Systems, Geometry, Measurements, Handling Data and Problem Solving. We provide the opportunity for our students to reason mathematically, and solve real life problems involving Maths.
