KEY STAGE 1 CURRICULUM
Within Key Stage One we follow the Essentials Curriculum to deliver English, Maths and Science to all our pupils. This is enhanced by our topic themed curriculum commonly known as the 'International Primary Curriculum' which covers many other subjects including History, Geography, Computing, Art, Design and Technology, Music, P.E, and R.E.
PHONICS - This takes place daily in Key Stage 1 to assist pupils with their basic skills in reading and writing. At Westfield our pupils follow the 'Letters and Sounds' programme.
READING - We follow the Oxford Reading Tree programme to aid in the teaching of reading. This is often enhanced by other schemes which suit the varying abilities of our pupils.
WRITING - The 'Talk 4 Writing' approach is followed across the academy to develop and improve pupils skills in writing. This involves pupils learning, re-telling and writing through the model of 'Imitiating, Innovating and Inventing' a wide range of texts from Reception through to Year 6.
Maths Mastery is a specific programme followed to teach the basic skills of maths through a mastery approach. Ensuring pupils have a deep understanding of the key concepts needed within Key Stage 1.
