The step up from Foundation Stage to Key Stage 1 marks an important stage for the children; no longer being the youngest children in the playground is an exciting concept and the school becomes ‘their’ school and something to be proud of. The guiding principle at this crucial stage is the notion that learning is fun and we aim to engender an enthusiasm for knowledge.
A curriculum designed to stimulate takes a topic based approach, allowing us to foster links across subjects to promote a greater understanding. Learning about a variety of text styles encourages huge strides in our writing while listening to and participating in stories allows the children to explore, investigate and create. In maths we learn about number, shape, space and measure and it’s in Sycamore Class that we begin to record our progress in sums and charts.
