Key Stage 1

In Year 1 and Year 2, children are encouraged to become independent learners by building upon the skills they have developed during the EYFS, which ensures a smooth transition between the two phases. Their learning takes place in indoor and outdoor learning environments.

We have a real commitment to creativity, and aim to make each child’s learning vivid, real, engaging and exciting and to provide challenges that encourage their development in all areas.

We also believe that it is important that all children improve their own knowledge and understanding, which is why information is cleverly woven into each subject by our experienced staff, who make cross-curricular links and ensure that all the children’s questions are answered.

Knowledge Organisers

A Knowledge Organiser identifies the key facts and information that pupils need to know and understand about a topic. They include key vocabulary, images and diagrams and make connections to pupils’ prior learning. Each one has been written by our class teachers to support the delivery of our school curriculum.

Pupils have a copy of the topic Knowledge Organiser in their exercise book and can refer to them during lessons. They support pupils with retention and retrieval of knowledge.

The Knowledge Organisers for our Autumn 1 topics can be found below:
