Key Stage 1

Key Stage 1 is the legal term for the two years of schooling in maintained schools in England and Wales normally known as Year 1 and Year 2 when pupils are aged between 5 and 7.

Year 1

What will my child be doing in Year 1?

At the age of 5 and 6 your child will be in Year 1.

Year 1 is the first of 2 years where your child will be working at Key Stage 1. At the end of Key Stage 1 your child should have reached a particular level of skills, knowledge and understanding.

Schools use targets to check each child’s progress so they can adapt their teaching to best serve the child.

Some children will not progress as quickly as others or have special educational needs. Parents and carers have a key role in the educational development of their child. It is important to communicate with your child’s teacher, take an interest in what your child is learning at school and praise your child when they have done well.

Year 1 will use the Letters and Sounds phonics scheme to prepare them for the phonics screening check in the summer term.

Year 2

What will my child be doing in Year 2?

At the age of 6 and 7 your child will be in Year 2.

Year 2 is the second of 2 years where your child will be working at Key Stage 1. At the end of Key Stage 1 your child should have reached a particular level of skills, knowledge and understanding. Schools use targets to check each child’s progress so they can adapt their teaching to best serve the child.
