Key Stage 1 information - Year 1 and Year 2

In Year 1 and 2, we build on the children's learning from Reception.  Everyday there are lessons in reading, writing, phonics and maths and these are carried out in groups. Such groupings do change depending on how the children have retained their previous learning in this area, friendships and the learning focus. Sometimes these groups are organised on ability and sometimes they are deliberately organised as mixed ability groups, depending on the teaching and learning objectives for the session.

Your child will usually be working in a group of about 10 children with either the teacher or teaching assistant and on occasions your child will be given the opportunity to access the various areas for learning independently, whilst other children are working in focused groups with the teaching staff.

We study the National Curriculum and have attached the Year 1 and Year 2 booklet to give you more information about your child's curriculum and topics below.
