Key Stage 1 Curriculum
Primary education takes place at both The British School of Barcelona campuses Castelldefells and Sitges.
The National Curriculum sets out the learning and expectations for Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2). Students in Key Stage 1 enter the first stage of Primary school.
KS1 tasks and tests cover:
- Speaking and listening
English, Maths and Science are considered core subjects in Primary education, and as such they take up a substantial part of the children’s learning week.
Other subjects of the National Curriculum include: Computing, History, Geography, Art, Music and Physical Education.
In addition to this, the pupil’s of The British School in Year 1 have two lessons of Spanish each week and they start Catalan lessons in Year 2.
All subjects are taught through a thematic and creative approach. At The British School of Barcelona we believe that learning should be meaningful and we give children the opportunity to learn in a way that is familiar and relevant to their every-day lives.
