KS1 Primary school

Key Stage 1 in the UK covers Year 1 and 2 when pupils are between the ages of 5 - 7 years. Most schools follow the national curriculum and children are assessed through SATs towards the end of Year 2. Our personal focus is neither on the curriculum nor the SATs. As parents, we want to make sure that the skills learned at this age isn't how to test well, but to develop an excellent broad foundation to life skills.

Learning how to read isn't enough, children should be developing a love for reading. Understanding the world, knowing where things are, where we come from, being able to tell time, draw up tables or draw a cat, make informed decisions based on logic and evidence (but also learning when it's best to follow your heart) are all important skills.

Our focus is on helping to foster emerging academic skills - reading, writing and basic arithmetic - and utilizing those within across many subjects - in fun and creative ways. There are so many cool ways of learning new things and we love experimenting and finding creative ways to transfer both knowledge and develop important skills.
