At the end of Year 2, your child will take the national curriculum tests, also known as SATs. The class teacher will use what they have observed in the classroom as well as the outcomes of these tests to judge how your child is progressing in reading, writing, maths and science. The combined results will also help to analyse the additional support your child will need and implement this as early as possible.

Key Stage One Curriculum

We follow the National Curriculum through a cross curricular approach, ensuring all key skills and subjects are taught throughout.

Phonics:

We teach the children early reading through systematic synthetic phonics. We use the ‘Letters and Sounds‘ scheme and ensure that all teaching is pitched to the children’s needs.

Reading:

This links to our vast range of texts from the Oxford Reading Tree publication. The range offers children fiction, non-fiction and poetry. As the children progress through the scheme by regular reading, Guided Reading and support from parents at home and at school, they will enter a variety of ‘Free Reading’, introducing the children to longer texts to increase the readers’ stamina.
