Ten super-easy KS1 hacks you're already doing at home




If you have a child aged five to seven years old, you may or may not know that they are in Key Stage One (KS1). Along with this rather dystopian sounding label, there are a series of learning outcomes that your child's brilliant teachers will aim to get your child working towards.


If that all sounds like hard work, it's actually not at all. We asked Maggie & Rose Curriculum Head Lucy Prew to shine a light on these learning outcomes for us to translate into some easier to understand, bitesize 'parent language' tips.


Now we're not sharing this to give you anything further to worry about, but to put your mind at rest. These are things you have probably been doing for years, proving you are doing a brilliant job, just keeping on doing what you're doing right now.


Some of our tips just suggest games to play or questions to ask while you're going about your everyday business - whether it's going to a park, cleaning the fridge, or reading the newspaper with a well-deserved cup of tea and a biscuit!
