Curriculum Plans for Reading, Writing, Mathematics and RE

Year 1 and Year 2 Curriculum and Expectations

Below you will find the expectations for Year 1 and Year 2 in Reading, Writing and Mathematics. This year the year 2 will be following the government's End of Key Stage 1 interim curriculum. The government guidance can be downloaded at the bottom of the page. This document provides detail of the specific expectations for the end of year 2 statutory tests and expectations.

The document for year 1 which can be downloaded below identifies Year 1 expectations. In this document we have also produced ‘deepening’ targets for parents to show you the targets that the children will be working towards if they have met all of the ‘expected’ targets to master their learning skills.

As a school we shall report your child’s progress against these end of year expectations at parent’s evening during the year.

The following terms will be used:

·         Your child is not on track to meet the end of year national expectations.

·         Your child is on track to meet the end of year national expectations .

·         Your child is on track to deepen the end of year national expectations.

Any extra support you can provide in helping your child or children to achieve these will benefit them greatly.
