Key Stage 1

Learning in Key Stage One (Years 1 and 2)

In Key Stage One a topic-based curriculum is taught through Cornerstones themes, which are used to deliver all subjects.  There is a particular emphasis on the core subjects of English and Maths, which are also taught discretely.

RE is taught using the Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education in Surrey Schools.

The Early Years Foundation Stage ‘Characteristics of effective learning’ are further developed in KS1 by embedding opportunities to develop four key learning skills in all learning experiences:

  1. Resilience - the ability to persevere, manage distractions, absorb learning and notice things
     
  2. Resourcefulness - the ability to make links in learning, question, imagine and reason your findings
     
  3. Reflectiveness - the ability to plan, distil and revise ideas, and reflect and improve learning
     
  4. Reciprocity - the ability for inter-dependence, the ability to collaborate and work with others, to empathise and listen and imitate.

‘Quality First’ teaching ensures that lessons are exciting, engaging and appropriately challenging, building on what children already know.  All teachers use a wide range of teaching approaches to suit all learning styles and children are encouraged to extend their learning through a range of differentiated activities and experiences.

Learning is targeted and personalised at all times, providing high challenge and skilful support in the relentless drive to raise attainment regardless of starting points.  This is achieved through approaches such as extended curriculum tasks, small-group and 1:1 learning contexts.

Our rich topic-based curriculum includes engaging and motivational planning, visitors to our schools and educational trips to develop successful learners who embrace challenge, enjoy making progress and achieving their best.
