At ONE International School Philippines, Key Stage One (KS1) pupils learn, practice, combine, develop and refine a wide range of skills in their work. Some of these skills are subject specific such as reading, writing and mathematics. Additionally, some skills are universal, for example the skills of communication, improving one’s own learning and performance, and creative thinking. These skills are also embedded in the subjects of the adapted British curriculum offered and are essential to effective learning. Opportunities for learning and teaching all these skills across the key stages are identified by ONE International School Philippines when planning. Pupils are encouraged to reflect on what and how they learn, and how these skills can be applied to different subjects, different problems and real-life situations.
