Key Stage 1

Key Stage 1 is a very exciting stage in a child's learning in which they enter the National Curriculum. Our Key Stage 1 curriculum is designed and delivered in line with the National Curriculum and the International Primary Curriculum. Our aim for Key Stage 1 learners is for them to develop excellent foundations in communication (reading, writing and speaking & listening) and maths through a range of creative and learning experiences. 

In Key Stage 1 we currently use Read, Write, Inc for our phonics and the Oxford Reading Tree reading books. Some children in Key Stage 1 will begin to use Accelerated Reader online to for reading comprehension activities. 

Our Key Stage 1 classes are: 


Cam Class (Year 1): Teacher: Mrs Childs, Teaching Assistant: Mrs Linnane

Waveney Class (Year 1): Teacher Miss Earl, Teaching Assistant: Mrs McLeod 

Thames Class (Year 2): Teacher Mrs Sisson, Teaching Assistants: Mrs Atkins


Welcome to Cam Class! 
During the autumn term we will be focusing on settling the children into a new routine and making sure they feel safe and happy in their new environment. Our day will include learning though play, phonics and maths sessions with some IPC (topic) work in the afternoons. During the mornings we will also have a slot for our Talk For Writing sessions - the first story will be learning is all about a chicken who gets followed by a tiger. 
Our PE days are Monday's and Wednesdays - please ensure that your child has PE kit suitable for indoors and outdoors including trainers suitable for outside. If your child wears earnings, they must be removed. 
Our IPC topics for this term will be 
1. Brainwave - we will be learning all about how to be a good learner and why our brain is so important. 
2. The Earth - Our Home - this will focus on learning about the world around us and be mostly science and geography based. 
For the first part of the year we will not be sending home any homework but please ensure your child reads every night.
