Key Stage 1
Welcome to Key Stage 1!
Key Stage 1 consists of three classes. There is a Year 1 class, a Year 1/2 class and a Year 2 class.
We enjoy a fun and creative curriculum and we try to visit as many places as we can to enhance the children’s learning experiences. Some of our topics have included ‘The Tudors’, ‘The Fire of London’, ‘India’ and ‘Seasonal Changes’. Every year, the children in Key Stage 1 take part in an annual Nativity where the children learn songs as well as scripted lines before performing in front of the school and family and friends.
Look at what we have been learning about:
