Key Stage 1 lasts for two years (Grades 1 and 2). In this booklet, you will find an outline of the topics we will be covering through the year in each subject. We hope this information will be useful for you to support your child at home. Individual subject areas are named below alongside the teachers responsible for planning and delivering that part of the curriculum.

If you would like more information on the main subjects’ schemes of work, please go to   Parent Curriculum Guide 3  Grade 1   HHHHomework omework omework omework Homework is an integral part of our curriculum. The nature and amount of homework vary according to the age and individual needs of the pupil and activity being undertaken. All Grades are encouraged to read for at least 20 minutes each day. The school sets four main aims for its homework  policy: 1.   to develop the very useful habit of regular unsupervised work; 2.   to extend the amount of time available for study; 3.   to enable the children to follow further interests they have developed in school; 4.   to encourage greater parental awareness of and involvement in their child’s learning. Homework will only be most effective if all concerned understand the pattern and format of all activities. A home/school diary is given to record all work set and provide a means of communication  between school and parents. This should be signed weekly as a record of completion. We are conscious of the fact that homework tasks need to be worthwhile and that at this age, children often have many outside interests which they and parents are keen for them to follow. We are very keen to get the right balance,  both in the amount and the type of homework that children are given. ã   Homework: the teacher’s role Homework assignments are an extension or reinforcement of activities carried out during class lessons. Tasks are set within the student’s ability to enable them to work independently at home. ã   Homework: the role of parents at home Parents should be supportive and use the homework task as a means of positive involvement in their child’s learning and participation in school activities. If your child has been unable to do the homework, has not understood the work or spent too much time on it, a note of explanation should be written to the teacher involved. ã   If your child is absent from school due to sickness A parent who wishes to receive homework for his/her child must make a request to the teacher or the office. Parents must remember that homework is a consolidation of class activities and it is not always  possible to set a task immediately. ã   If your child is absent from school for other reasons Any parent who insists on taking their child away for extra holidays during the term time must accept that no homework will be set and that their child may have to make up the work missed upon returning to school. ã   Extra homework given by the teachers The teachers have the right to ask a child to catch up with class work at home if he/she has noticed that the child has not worked sufficiently during class time. In that case, the teacher will write a note to the  parents in the diary stating why the extra work has been given.
