Year 1 Schemes of Learning
In Key Stage 1 and 2, we will teach the Programmes of Study for the National Curriculum 2014 and other aspects of the school curriculum, including PSHE, Religious Education and Citizenship. We will do this using a thematic, topic based approach combing all subjects where possible. We believe that teaching subject knowledge and skills as part of a wider topic based curriculum allows learners to make useful links between areas of learning, and consolidate skills. Learners are also likely to be more engaged in their learning if it has a context and theme that runs through it. New phase leaders will design and review the delivery of the Key Stage 2 curriculum with the support of the Primary Phase Vice Principal and the Middle Leaders’ Forum.
For phonics, we teach using the Letters and Sounds scheme and we reinforce sounds with RWI sound cards.
