Statement of Intent KS1
In Key Stage One we are passionate about supporting children to continue to develop their love of learning. Our children’s wellbeing is at the centre of our curriculum, we understand that they need to feel safe, loved and secure within the environment in order to access a high level of learning. We teach topics in cross-curricular ways and are committed to providing hands on learning opportunities, enabling children to shape their own learning journey. We aim to foster children’s independence, resilience and perseverance and ensure that through our high quality provision they are able to consolidate and enhance a range of skills in all curriculum areas. Our inclusive approach enables us to foster our children’s curiosity and imagination as well as their academic achievement.
What a fantastic first few weeks we have had welcoming our Year 2 children back to school! We have enjoyed getting to know each other and working together on many exciting activities to help us settle back in to school life, including making bunting all about ourselves, drawing self-portraits and creating art work on our class animals (otters, foxes and badgers) as well as continuing to challenge our own learning in ‘COOL’ time. We have been particularly impressed with how our children have been showing the characteristics of effective learning such as perseverance, creativity, teamwork and curiosity in all sessions and we are really excited for the year ahead.
