Knollmead Primary School

Key Stage 1

Key Stage 1 is made up of two classes; Year 1 and Y 2.  Please refer to the Cornerstones grid for topics covered.

In both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 we assess children’s learning and progress accurately and regularly, ensuring that children know how well they have done and what they need to do to improve. In addition to our day to day assessment, key assessment at Key Stage 1 includes the phonics screening check which is administered to all children in Year 1 and tasks and tests which are performed at the end of Year 2. These tasks and tests are designed to be administered informally as part of normal classroom activity. The results inform teachers’ overall assessments in English and mathematics which are reported formally.

Please refer to the home learning section for information on how we believe that homework supports the children’s learning.
