Key Stage 1 (Years 1 & 2)


Year 1 and 2 join together in our KS1 class. We have literacy and numeracy everyday, where children engage in a variety of activities. We continue with our phonics scheme "Letters and Sounds" completing stages 5 and 6 and we use "Book Bands" for our reading scheme. A small class size ensures a high level of individual focus and progress is closely monitored as a result.

Many IT resources are used including laptops and an LED Smartscreen with curriculum related software.

For other areas of the curriculum, there is a two year cycle of interesting and exciting topics including dinosaurs and space. Topic work is enhanced by trips and visitors to school.

Children continue to benefit from specialist teachers for French and music. We are also lucky to have use of Bushey Grove Leisure Centre with weekly gymnastic/dance lessons and games lessons on the astro-turf. We also have swimming lessons in the summer term.

Children can commence individual piano lessons in addition to learning musical instruments as part of the curriculum.
