KS 1 - Year 1 & 2

Key Stage 1 consists of Years 1 and 2 at The Hills.

Year 1 is where we start to make a smooth transition from Early Years learning towards meeting the expectations of the national curriculum. We continue to promote understanding through play-style activities whilst introducing more structured teaching styles.

Year 2 builds on the progress achieved in Year 1. We encourage positive behaviour for learning and maintain our high expectations for progress so that Year 2 children are prepared to meet the standards expected during their Key Stage 1 SATs.
