Class Green, Truth and Peace
 
Key Stage 1 starts in Year 1 and ends in Year 2. We work hard to ease the transition between EYFS and Year 1 as this can be a challenging time for the children as they move from a play based curriculum to the more formal National Curriculum. We have 3 parallel classes in Key Stage 1, where Year 1 children learn with Year 2's. 
The experienced staff provide stimulating opportunities for play in the Autumn term as well as providing lots of exciting hands-on learning opportunities. The curriculum in Key Stage 1 reflects the changing needs of the children as they begin subject based learning including English and maths as well as, amongst others, history, science and computing.
 
Key Stage 1 is an exciting stage when many children develop increased fluency as readers and writers. They become confident with basic maths concepts that provide the basis for future learning. The children are well established with the routines of school and quickly develop strong relationships with their new teachers and consolidate friendships made in their first year at school.
