Key Stage 1

BC Phoenix School_184BC Phoenix School_121

 The curriculum for Key Stage 1 supports the development of pupils’ self-help skills, communication, emotional wellbeing and social interaction. KS1 follow a modified version of the National Curriculum and equals for the core subjects of Literacy, Numeracy, Science, PSGE and Computing. Non-core subjects are taught thematically through Topic. Specialist teachers teach music, Drama, PE and gardening. Pupils also have opportunities to go swimming for half a term each year, and to experience learning in different areas of the school such as the sensory theatre, soft play room, water therapy, sand house, bike track, life skills room and Zen garden.

Teachers plan a variety of different trips outside school, including walks in the local area, visits to the shops, farm, zoo and travel on public transport. Trips form a key part of the pupils learning which supports understanding. Religious Education incorporates the Tower Hamlets agreed syllabus for Religious Education (2012-2017) and visits have taken place at the local mosque and St Pauls cathedral. We are currently in the process of integrating Religious studies into the humanities subjects and we have a focus on value driven approaches to RE with a focus on SMSC.
