Key Stage 1

Key Stage 1

At iBOS, we understand how important the early years of education are for our student’s development. Our online School is exceptionally proud to offer students the opportunity to study with us in their earliest years when they begin their learning journey (Key Stage 1, Years 1 and 2). Our teachers follow a multi-stream approach at this level with flexibility to cover topics holistically rather than as separate subject hours. We embed British values into their learning, alongside the improvement of linguistic, mathematical, scientific, social, physical and artistic skills. Students gain invaluable knowledge, understanding, and skills in every aspect of their education. The following strands are incorporated into the Key Stage 1 week:

1. Literacy 
Reading and writing are core elements at this level, and so are embedded in the wider curriculum. Extra time is allocated for reading practice to encourage reading for pleasure. Spelling, vocabulary, grammar and punctuation are also strongly emphasized, setting up students for success at later levels.

2. Numeracy
Numeracy is the other key strand at this level, we aim to ensure our students are fluent in the fundamentals of the subject and can reason mathematically and solve problems

3. Science
Students thoroughly cover all key scientific areas by studying Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Students will learn about the nature, processes and methods of science by working scientifically.

4. Humanities
Students explore both History and Geography to learn how historical and environmental events influence their immediate surroundings and the world as they know it.

5. Art and Design
Students will learn how to produce creative work, learning drawing, painting, sculpture and other design techniques.

6. Computer Science
Students will learn the principles behind computer science and how to use information technology.
