Our KS1 Curriculum

KS1 Long Term Curriculum Plan 2021-22

KS1 Curriculum Maps



Children are required to come to school wearing their PE kit on their specific PE day. Please make sure that any earrings are removed before coming to school on PE days as children will not be able to participate if they have not done so.


Current PE Days:


Hawking: Tuesday

Parks: Thursday



Water Bottles


Please make sure that children bring a water bottle to school every day. This can be refilled during the day.

Reading Books


Please make sure that your child has their reading book and diary in school every day. Books will be changed once a week according to whether your child has read at home. At school, we promote a love of reading and is is vital that this is also conveyed at home. It is so important that you listen to your child read regularly and this will have a huge impact on their progress. 

Please try to listen to your child read at least 3 times per week. Please record any comments in the diary. You can also record any additional reading that your child does at home. We love to hear about what they are reading!





We follow the Letters and Sounds phonics programme across Key Stage 1. Children are grouped by ability, according to the phase that they are working within. Children are regularly assessed and may move groups during the year according to the progress they make.

Class Dojo


Due to the success of Class Dojo during Lockdown, we are now using this as our main form of communication. Please feel free to contact your child's class teacher on Class Dojo if you have any concerns or questions.

We will also update Class Dojo regularly with any important information.


In class, children are awarded Dojos for a variety of reasons including excellent behaviour, good effort, showing kindness towards others etc. Each week, the Dojos are collected and converted into House Points which will contribute to the whole school's reward system.


You can also upload any work that your child has completed at home onto Class Dojo using the 'Portfolio' section.
