Key Stage One Education

Year One and Year Two 

As I continue my journey at Someries Infant School, my teachers will help me to make a smooth transition from Early Childhood Education into Key Stage One Education.

My learning will become a little more structured, but is still lots of fun. I will thrive following a curriculum that has been designed to provoke awe and wonder and provide me with lots of amazing experiences, whilst ensuring that all my needs are met. My teachers believe that I learn best when ideas and concepts are connected and so curriculum coverage is carefully mapped to ensure continuity and progression of key fundamental skills and knowledge that I need for my successful learning journey. 

The teachers in my class know that although I am young, I have big ideas and so they will help to develop my natural curiosity and stimulate my imagination by bringing my learning alive and delivering the curriculum to me in a variety of ways. I will learn in a creative and engaging environment which radiates Someries Infant School’s vision. My learning will involve lots of hands-on opportunities and the adults will encourage me to think for myself, solve problems, make decisions and take risks. 

I will learn in different ways through teacher-led lessons and by working in pairs and groups to develop my cooperative skills. The teachers who work across Key Stage One are committed to making sure that I can read by the age of six and so they will endeavour, through high quality phonics and reading lessons and first-class interventions, to make this happen. In addition to my rich and meaningful curriculum, I will also be challenged through wonderful provocations and reflections which form part of each Prime Learning Challenge.

Teachers see my parents and carers as partners in my learning and development and so they will be welcomed into school so I can share my experiences with them. I can demonstrate all of my new skills to my parents including how I can apply my problem-solving skills.

In addition to my inspiring day-to-day learning, Someries Infants School offers exhilarating learning opportunities outside the classroom. I will be able to engage with numerous trips and workshops to increase my knowledge of key topics and further my understanding of my Prime Learning Challenges.

Someries Infants School is also home to a state-of-the-art Immersive Learning Centre which enables me to be transported to anywhere in the world! I can hunt with a pride of lions on the African Savannah, explore the deepest depths of the oceans or lead an expedition to the glacial North Pole. The possibilities for learning are endless!
