Key Stage 1
Our Key Stage 1 Curriculum builds upon the firm foundations made in our Early Years Foundation Stage.
We strongly believe that alongside language development, reading is key to pupils successfully accessing the curriculum and making good progress.
We develop a love of reading in our children, whether for pleasure or to inform and broaden knowledge. We will emphasise the importance of books and literature (including ebooks) in enabling children to become confident, happy and enthusiastic readers and writers, with all the benefits this brings. Dedicated time is devoted each day for the teacher to share a story with the children through ‘Story Escape’.
Our aim in KS1 is to lay the foundations to equip all pupils with the skills and confidence to become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, to reason mathematically and to have the ability to solve increasingly sophisticated problems as outlined in the 2014 National Curriculum programmes of study.
Thematic – E3L Curriculum
At Shireland Technology Primary, our themes are carefully chosen to show progression through content and knowledge across the subjects, taking account of seasons across the year and the first theme of each academic year focusing on PSHE, such as ‘Remember Me’ in Year 1.
