Here you will find information about what children learn in the Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception) and Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2).


In KS1 the National Curriculum is used to plan exciting topics to make the children's learning fun and meaningful. In the EYFS we plan when we will teach the Early Years Outcomes and use the children's interests throughout the Year to plan topics.


To find out more about what your child is learning please visit individual class  pages via the links below. Here you will find information about each subject and what the themes, visits and topics will be for the half-term.


Alternatively please speak directly to the class teacher.

Teaching of Reading 

Children at Hillshott are systematically taught phonics using the “Letters and Sounds” scheme which is combined with the Jolly Phonics program in the Foundation Stage and continued as needed to support children through key stage 1.


All children are encouraged to enjoy reading and the process of learning to become fluent readers, in addition to learning their phonics skills they are also supported with learning to read in other age appropriate ways.
