Key Stage 1
Mrs Busby is our Key Stage One teacher
Planning for our mixed age classes is done in a two year cycle for Key Stage One. This ensures that we have coverage of all the National Curriculum requirements.
We plan out topics so that there are four long blocks of time to immerse ourselves in a topic and allow plenty of time to follow the children's ideas. In between the blocks we also have theme weeks which is how we teach our RE curriculum. In these weeks we concentrate totally on the RE theme for the week and approach it in a very cross curricular manner, so the children do English, Art, Maths, Geography activities to name but a few, that are all linked to the learning intentions for the RE work.
