KS1 curriculum

In Key Stage 1 we work in close partnership with parents and the Early Years Foundation Stage Team to ensure all children continue their learning journey in a safe, happy and nurturing environment, which stimulates their creativity and development.

We hope that together, we can engage your child in a variety of motivatinginteresting and exciting learning opportunities that will prepare them to become independent learners and achieve to their full potential.

All of our Key Stage 1 team have a strong commitment and dedication to providing the best possible education for children at Hunslet Moor Primary School.

In KS1 we follow a two year rolling program in which all subjects of the National Curriculum plus R.E. are taught through a thematic approach. We believe that learning should be meaningful and we give children the opportunity to learn in a way that is familiar and relevant to their everyday lives. Learning in KS1 takes the form of guided group workindependent activitiesteacher led activities and play-based learning. We use a variety of stimulating teaching styles and strategies to hook and engage the children in their learning, which include ‘hands on’ learning, visual learning through pictures, videos or demonstrations, and auditory learning through sounds and hearing.

Learning Logs and Homework

Learning logs go home every Wednesday evening for your child to complete and return to school by the following Monday.

Please can we remind all parents/ careers to sign their child’s reading record every time they have read. This helps us know how your child is getting on with their reading at home and also to ensure that their book is changed regularly.

Autumn 1

In our first half term of the new school year, we are excited to learn all about each other through our theme ‘Families and Neighbours’. During our learning challenge work, we will be learning about Florence Nightingale and the impact she has had on today’s society. We will also be creating our own toys in art and DT; looking at different ways to join materials.

We will be sending home newsletters each half term to share what we are doing but if you would like to know anything please do come and speak to Miss Wicks, the KS1 Leader, or one of the KS1 team.


We look forward to working together with you.

Thank you for taking the time to browse our section of the school website, we hope you find it informative and useful – please come back soon!
