Key Stage 1

Welcome to Key Stage One

Teachers: Mrs. Brock, Miss Edley, Mrs. Gardner and Miss Smith                   

Teaching Assistants: Mrs. Horton, Mrs. Burton, Mrs. Stacey and Miss Rogers


Within Key Stage One we have classes made up of Year One and Year Two children catering for children aged five to seven.

Each term we plan an exciting curriculum based around the children’s interests. We inspire our children throughout the year by planning a visit or visitors to ensure they have first-hand experiences to enrich their learning.

 Year 2 visit to English Institute of Sport 


Year 2 visit to Conisbrough Castle


Year 1 visit to the National Coal Mining Museum


Year 1 visit to Eureka


Some examples of our curriculum themes are; Let’s celebrate! (Celebrations and religious festivals), Let's Dig! (Mining and local history), Dead or Alive (Plant and animal study), One Giant Step (Space and significant person from History, Neil Armstrong).



Celebrating our cross-curricular work through display




In Year 1 and Year 2 our core curriculum is planned from the National Curriculum.

We supplement the National Curriculum with our own progressive key skills for the foundation subjects.

The core of our mathematics teaching is the Abacus scheme which enables us to ensure full coverage across all mathematical areas. This is enriched further by our weekly maths challenge sessions where we develop children as problem solvers and risk takers.


A phonic approach to reading and writing is developed through the Read Write Inc programme.  In addition there is focused teaching of spelling patterns and rules, which is enriched using interactive online resources.
