In Key Stage 1 we encourage children to learn in an exciting, creative and supportive environment. Each child is treated as an individual and encouraged to take control of their own learning. Being a team player and working collaboratively within class enables children to build important social skills.
In these formative years the essential building blocks of learning are established through a rich and varied curriculum. The children are taught the core subjects of Literacy, Numeracy, Science and ICT, as well as Physical Education, Religious Education, Design and Technology, Art, Music, History and Geography. Furthermore we focus on SEAL- Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning, which encourages children to take more responsibility for their own actions. This is turn enables them to choose good behaviour, increase self esteem and helps them to manage difficult situations.
