Key Stage One (KS1) at King’s Meadow Academy is made up of three classes.
Year 1 – Daisy Class (Miss Nunn)
Year 1 / 2 – Bluebell Class (Mrs Odumala/Mrs Armitage)
Year 2 – Honeysuckle Class (Miss Peace)
In Key Stage One, we build upon the good start that our children have made in Foundation Stage. We continue to put emphasis on the development of Communication and Language, Physical Development and PSED (Personal, Social and Emotional Development), as we firmly believe that these areas enable our children to be competent readers, writers and mathematicians by the time they leave us at the end of Year 2. We also believe that a focus on these prime areas ensure our children are ready for the next step in their education.
We are committed to helping our children become independent, life-long learners with the knowledge and skills they need in all subjects. We are developing a progressive, skill based curriculum with opportunities for the children to learn and excel in both academic and non-academic subjects. Throughout all subjects, we weave our ‘World Citizen’ strand, so that children are taught to challenge stereotypes and are educated that our differences should be respected and celebrated. Children have opportunities to learn and excel through both academic and non-academic learning experiences, as we strive to develop the ‘whole child.’
At King’s Meadow Academy we recognise the importance of our role in developing children’s character and well-being, alongside their academic achievements.
