 Key Stage 1

At Leeming RAF CP School we recognise that all children develop in individual ways, at varying rates. Every child is a competent learner who can be resilient, confident and self assured. All children are given an excellent start in their education through creative and innovative teaching and learning experiences.

Key Stage 1 comes after Foundation Stage, and includes children in Year 1 and Year 2.

The curriculum in Key Stage 1 is activity-based and cross-curricular. As in the Foundation Stage, phonics, reading and writing, and maths are taught in small groups with children of similar ability grouped together. Children have lots of opportunities for learning outdoors.

Rolling Programme

Children’s learning is centred around an overall topic which generally last half a term.

KS1 Curriculum

Topics are carefully chosen to enthuse and motivate the children and maximise links across the curriculum. We also place a high emphasis on developing children’s thinking skills through an enquiry based approach linked to real-world experiences. Over two years we aim to cover all aspects of the KS1 National Curriculum, which lays out what will be taught in each year in the programmes of study.

Children have a daily phonics session with additional catch up / intervention for those with learning needs.  Staff plan sessions according to the Government guidance “Letter and Sounds”. We also draw from other phonics schemes, particularly "Jolly Phonics". Children will have weekly guided reading sessions and have individual reading books to share at home. 

Our school scheme uses a range of products to support the learning of reading. Children also have the opportunity to borrow books from our school library.
