St. Chad's Catholic Primary School, Catholic Lane, Sedgley, Dudley

Key Stage 1

In Key Stage 1 we enjoy our learning in Religious Education, English, Maths, Science, Computing, Physical Education, Music, History, Geography, Art, Design Technology and Relationships, Health and Sex Education. In Key Stage 1 we have a focus on the basics of reading, phonics, writing and number and we devote extra curriculum time to these important aspects of the Key Stage 1 timetable.

We normally welcome parents into our classes regularly as we hold termly ‘open lessons’ where parents are invited to join in a lesson with their child, followed by a chat and a coffee with the class teacher to ask any questions.

We also have expert music teachers come into school to teach music to the children in Years 1 and 2.

In Key Stage 1 we have members of the School Council who meet at least once a term to discuss a variety of issues and help the school’s leaders to continually improve our school. Every class in Key Stage 1 has Mission team members who help to monitor and evaluate the collective worship, Religious Education and Catholic Life of the school by completing regular audits.

All of the Key Stage 1 children normally have lots of opportunities to go on visits to interesting places linked to our curriculum.
