KS1 Curriculum

Summer 2nd 2022 

We have made it to the end of fantastic year, where the children have enjoyed a greater level of normalcy with the return of sharing assemblies, sports days, and school trips, amongst many other golden memories. In year 1 and 2 we have thoroughly enjoyed our final topic of the year, ‘London’. At the beginning of the term we were very lucky to have a visit from the Brandon fire brigade, who helped us recreate the Great Fire of London in our school playground.

In English the children have been looking at some wonderful books set in London. In year 1 the children loved dressing up as robbers from the story ‘Cops and Robbers’ and did a fantastic job at writing their own character descriptions. In year 2 the children read a non-fiction book all about the Great Fire of London. The children were fascinated by the events and they created excellent, well-written recounts.

We had an excellent time watching the theatre show, ‘Party’ performed by the Doorstep Theatre Company. The children met Alfonso, a boy who was very excited to attend a birthday party. All of the children had such fun!

In history we delved deeper into what life was like in 1666, paying particular attention to the design of Stuart houses. The children were team ants and worked in groups to recreate Stuart houses, ready to be burnt down during our Great Fire of London re-enactment.

Science this term has been all about materials. The children have been looking around the school, identifying the different materials things are made from. The children have also been thinking about the different purposes of different materials.

This term we have certainly kept active! The children all loved participating in Activity Week, where they had opportunities to take part in archery, trampolining, jujitsu, dance and many other wonderful activities. We also had our Key Stage One Sports Day this term, where we were so impressed by what good sports the children were. All of the children cheered on their friends and were proud of each other’s achievements.

Key Stage One children have all worked incredible hard this year and we hope they enjoy a well-deserved break. We look forward to welcoming them back in September, ready for the next challenge!
