It is the smallest of all seeds but when it grows up it is the biggest of all plants. It becomes a tree, so that birds come and make their nests.' Matthew 13:32

KS1 Curriculum

Welcome to Year 1 and 2


Welcome to Year 1 and 2! We are a mixed class of year 1 and 2 pupils aged from 5-7. Reception also share the learning space but have a separate room joined with and open arch. Our year groups have the opportunities to access continuous provision activities as well as teacher led learning either in small groups or as a whole class dependant on their needs.


We begin our learning each day with handwriting or spellings. The rest of the morning sessions are spent learning English and maths. In English lessons we focus on reading and analysing texts and then move onto creating our own pieces of writing. We also include lots of speaking and listening activities! Our maths lessons follow a Mastery curriculum which includes: place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions, measurement, property of shape, position and direction and statistics (for year 2 only). During maths lessons the children complete a mixture of fluency, reasoning and problem-solving activities.


In the afternoons we spend our time learning about the other curriculum areas such as: topic (history and geography), science, computing, PSHE, PE, art, design technology and music. We also take part in Forest school sessions in our school forest every week.


You can find out more about our topics and areas of learning by exploring the curriculum overviews and long term plans.
