Key Stage 1 Curriculum
KEY STAGE 1 (Y1&2) at CAMBRAI
Key Stage 1 at Cambrai builds seamlessly from our Early Years - to offer a broad and rich introduction to specific subject learning, through the excitement of a range of interesting topics!
Year 1 and Year 2 'Long Term Plans' are available to view below. These plans detail which topics children will cover, as well as which subjects are taught and when - as well as how the legal 'National Curriculum' has been appropriately interwoven in to our curriculum.
Below, are the individual subject overviews for Key Stage 1. For example, what will be taught in each of the 'geography' units outlined in the long term plans. Each subject details what will be taught in year 1 and year 2, to clearly show where learning fits in to the overall intent of the subject - with what has come before, and what will come next... as a result of this learning. Some subjects, such as PSCHE and online-safety have already been designed from Year 1 to Year 6.
As these year groups become 'live' at Cambrai, each 'topic' will also have a parental overview shared, detailing what will be covered, how parents can support at home and the new vocabulary that children will learn.
Learning to read, by learning to decode, then comprehend is the bedrock of Key Stage 1 - and we make no apology for reading taking pride of place in our Key Stage 1 curriculum. To teach phonics, we use the 'Phonics Bug' systematic phonics scheme, which follows the government 'Letters and Sounds' programme. More information about Phonics Bug can be found here: Phonics Bug - Order of Sounds and
Phonics Bug - what is it? . This scheme progresses in to the 'Bug Club' reading scheme, which we use across the school.
