LK in Key Stage One
Key Stage One are taught a mixture of Ivrit (Modern Hebrew), Parasha (the weekly torah portion) and Dinim (Jewish law). The children have many experiences which enhance their education. A highlight of the Year One curriculum is the Suddur topic when the children are presented with their first school Siddur. By Year Two we aim for the children to be fluent in their Ivrit reading and so we present them with an Ivrit book. Parents are invited to both the ceremonies and encouraged to join in with the celebrations.
LK teachers liaise closely with their parallel Class Teachers. Opportunities for integration with the National Curriculum are actively sought in order to enhance both the overall learning experience and in order to develop further each child’s identity, knowledge and understanding.

Year two have had a fantastic term learning all about the Great Fire of London in Spring 1 and Moving and Growth in Spring 2.
In maths, we have been busy learning lots of new mathematical concepts including column addition and subtraction (with regrouping), telling the time to the nearest 5 minutes, reading and writing shaded fractions and using all these skills to answer word problems.
In literacy, we have been reading about The Baker’s Boy and the Great Fire of London and Jack and the Beanstalk. Using both of these books, we have written a dairy entry as the baker’s boy, our own version of Jack and the Beanstalk with our own choice of characters and settings and a super set of instructions on how to plant a sunflower.
During the term, we have had the opportunity to meet our local fire fighters who kindly showed us all their fancy equipment in the fire engine and we were able to climb into the fire engine and pretend to be fire fighters on call. We have also had the privilege of having Leeds Rhinos visit us to teach us about rugby and show us how to handle a rugby ball safely.
