Key Stage 1

At Leeming RAF CP School we recognise that all children develop in individual ways, at varying rates. Every child is a competent learner who can be resilient, confident and self assured. All children are given an excellent start in their education through creative and innovative teaching and learning experiences.

Key Stage 1 comes after Foundation Stage, and includes children in Year 1 and Year 2.

As in the Foundation Stage, phonics, reading and writing, and maths are all prioritised. We recognise that it is vital children are ready for the next stage of their learning, and these core skills (especially reading) underpin every other subject. 

We also place a high emphasis on developing children’s thinking skills through an enquiry based approach linked to real-world experiences. Children also have lots of opportunities for learning outdoors.

Over two years we aim to cover all aspects of the KS1 National Curriculum, which lays out what will be taught in each year in the programmes of study.

Children have a daily phonics session with additional catch up / intervention for those with learning needs.  For more information, please see our English and Phonics page. Children will have regular guided reading sessions and have individual reading books to share at home. Our school scheme uses a range of products to support the learning of reading. All children in EYFS and Y1 will access fully decodable books. Children also have the opportunity to borrow books from our school library.

We are currently in the midst of a full curriculum review; we have already clarified our Curriculum Intent for all subjects and further information about this will be appearing on our website soon. In the meantime, if you would like to discuss any aspect of our curriculum, please contact the office and the relevant subject leader will get in touch with you.
