Key Stage 1

Key Stage One is for Year 1 (5-6 year olds)  and Year 2 (6-7 year olds)

When starting in Year One, the Year One teachers and the Early Years Team work closely together to ensure a smooth transition from Reception. 

In both Years 1 and 2, the children receive the Hotham REAL curriculum offer. Throughout the day children receive daily phonics teaching delivered through the Letters and Sounds scheme and Maths though the Maths No Problem and Maths for Mastery approach and Science through the school's own planning in line with the National Curriculum. Wherever possible all other subjects are delivered through that term's real project. During the first few weeks of term parents will receive an information leaflet detailing what the Year group's project is for that term along with an knowledge organiser for you to help your child learn the key knowledge at home. Weekly homework sheets will also give you the highlights of what your child haslearnt that week, along with discussion points for you to find more from your child.

KS1 SATs

At Hotham we believe strongly in continuing to provide a broad and balanced curriculum for our Year Two children. We will learn test skills but we will still be deeply into our REAL Project. Previous years SATs papers are available online; they will give you an idea of the expectations but please do not complete these at home as we practice them in class and use them target our teaching and close gaps.
