Welcome to Key Stage 1

We have 3 classes in our area – a Year 1 class, a Year 1/2 class and a Year 2 class. We all work together and cover the same topics throughout the year, working on a 2-year rolling programme.

Entering Key Stage 1 is an exciting time where children begin their learning journey with the National Curriculum and develop an increasing independence. Topics covered are creative and enrich their understanding of the world around them. Many topics are based locally such as geography topics about Brotton village and the Victorian seaside town of Saltburn.

All children will begin Key Stage 1 on the Read, Write, Inc. Phonics programme. Their groups will be reassessed approximately every 6 weeks or sooner if needed. Children on this programme will bring home reading books closely matched to their phonic knowledge. They will also be assigned an E-book every 3-5 days (dependent on the child’s group) which can be accessed on the Oxford Owl website using the log in details at the front of your child’s reading record.

Once the programme has been completed, the children will move onto the Accelerated Reader programme which uses computer-based assessments to match texts accurately to children’s reading ability.

Please encourage your child to read regularly and a parent/carer to sign the Reading Record each time they have read. This will help your child to progress and receive whole school and class rewards.
