Primary

Prime School's offers a flexible curriculum with integrated assessment for 5-10 year olds.

Key Stage 1

Key Stage 1 is the stage of education that a child begins when they turn five. It is a busy and exciting stage where children build on what they learned in their early years classes and start to develop their learning potential and fully participate in school life. During this two-year period there is a focus on the core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science, along with various cross-curricular projects that will help the children to develop their learning styles, their natural curiosity and to explore the world around them. The children will also have weekly Art and P.E. lessons with teachers who specialize in those subject areas.

Core Subject information

The core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science are each divided into different units throughout the year. Each unit is based on a particular topic within that subject, and aims to be interactive and fun for the pupils while helping them to meet specific learning targets.Below is a guide to examples of units covered in Key Stage 1.

Main projects could be ‘Pirates’, ‘the stories of Hans Christian Andersen’ and ‘'Jungle animals’, including trips to the Hans Christian Andersen museum and the zoo to support the work done in class. Some of our smaller projects may include ‘Who we are’, ‘Where in the world is Barnaby bear’ and ‘holidays’ such as Halloween, Eid, Diwali, Christmas and Easter.
