Key Stage 1

Years 1 and 2

Mrs Coleman & Mrs Steele, supported ably by our Teaching Assistants, Mrs Joyce and Mrs Gallagher, and further supported by Integration assistants Mrs Jephcott and Mrs Malhi,  develop skills nurtured in Early Years and begin to fine tune the academic progress of children especially in Reading, Writing and Number.

We follow the National Curriculum and our children have risen to the challenge of the increased expectations identified within it. Lockdown 2020/21 presented its own difficulties, but as we emerge from the fall out, we also observe new found confidences and skills, from staff and children, which we are dovetailing successfully into our practices.
Please take the time to dip into our Curriculum pages, as the new term unfolds, where you will find a wealth of information, including :
Our curriculum and what inspires us to use the methods we use in each subject
Our resources and the progression that is apparent in each subject
Our innovations and the successes we hope to achieve ( and a flavour of what we have and are achieving currently)
What the children say about differing subjects
What the other stakeholders say about our differing subjects
Our methods of assessment and what they tell us about the status of the differing subjects here at St Mary of the Angels (SMA)
What we are learning this term in each year group
