Key Stage 1
In Key Stage 1, for Years 1 and 2, the children have daily English and Maths lessons, Monday-Thursday. In the afternoons, and on Fridays, we teach Science, Geography, History, Computing, RE, PSHE, Art, Design Technology and Music. We use a topic as a thematic approach to our learning so that we can make links, where possible. For example, in our topic of Aviation Spring 2021, the children were taught about how aviation developed over time, using English lessons for the children to write about what they have learned in History.
Some subjects are taught discretely, when we can’t easily link our topic; for example, we follow the Surrey SACRE (Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education) syllabus for Religious Education and we often teach RE as a ‘stand-alone’ subject in Years 1 and 2.
