Welcome to Key Stage 1!
In KS1, we focus on building independence and resilience towards learning. We understand how important it is to take risks in our learning; nothing ventured, nothing gained. We foster a positive attitude towards learning, where aspirations can be set high and a child’s emotional wellbeing and development are at the forefront of all that we do.
The adults in Waterton class are Mrs MacKenzie, Mrs Mack and Mrs Arkell.
If you have any issues, would like to get in contact or want to share some of your child’s learning, please use our class email NCPAwaterton@watertonacademytrust.org

Mental maths is the ability to work out calculations of all sorts in your head (not just addition calculations). It means being able to give an answer to a questions without having to write down every step of the calculation, although making the odd note is acceptable.

- Please ensure that your child has his/her PE kit in school and that all items belonging to your child are clearly labelled.
PE sessions take place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
