Foundation Subjects Within Key Stage 1
Within the Key Stage 1 classes, we follow a theme approach combining many of the foundation subjects. Below is a table to show what them is covered when.
Please click on the documents below to see how we cover the National Curriculum programmes of study through our themes.
Music, Computing, PE and RE run as discrete sessions within Key Stage 1
At Eastway much of our music learning is supported by the Charanga Musical School, recommended by Wirral County Music. This online music scheme, covers a range of styles and genres and musically draws together listening/appraising, composing/improvising and performing skills in singing and instrument playing.
Children learn about the inter-related dimensions of pitch, tempo, dynamics, duration, timbre and texture, and how these are used in musical structures to create a musical picture, mood or effect. Through Charanga we have access to a large range of music from different countries and times, giving our children a good introduction to the History of Music from the Medieval era to today.
During our discrete sessions children access units on programming; computational thinking; creativity; computer networks; communication/collaboration; and productivity. Most of these units last for a half term, but this depends on the length of the half term.
We currently make use of the ‘Switched on Computing’ units. Mr Anderton, IT Technician teaches computing sessions in school and the children benefit from having an expert delivering in this subject area.
PE is taught by both our class teachers and additional coaches. Class teachers make use of the Wirral PE programme, developing dance, gymnastics and athletics skills from year to year. Miss Johnson our Sport’s Leader also develops athletics skills as well as games.
RE learning in Key Stage 1 covers Christianity, Judaism and Hinduism through a range of topics. Below is a link to the topics covered through the year for RE.
