Year 1/2

Welcome to Year 1/2. There are 6 classes across Key Stage 1 - four on the Cambourne campus and two on the Hardwick campus. Children are taught in a cross-curricular way where they are encouraged to investigate their own interests and be independent, enthusiastic learners.

Home Learning for current school absences. 



Hello Year 1/2,

Well done to everyone who has been working hard at home, children and grownups! You have been doing a great job and we have loved seeing the work you have sent in. We hope you all enjoyed the ‘Plan a Mexico Themed Party’ Project Pack. We will be adding more fun weekly packs for you to do after the Easter Holidays and will be putting up weekly Maths work to do too. During the Easter Holidays we will not be adding any new Project Packs to the website but do not fear… we will leave you with some exciting Easter Challenges to keep you busy! Below is a little sneak peak of what you can expect to do during our next topic, which will be Chocolate! You can of course find lots of enjoyable, educational things to do on our Year Group Page and the English and Maths pages, as well as on the school Instagram account, so please continue to explore everything we have put on so far. Also keep practising the skills on the Weekly Life Skills page too. 

Remember to email the office with any questions, problems or any photos of your work you would like to be shared on the website.  (Please include your name and teacher in any email you send).

To get you in the mood for Easter and our new topic of Chocolate, have a look at this video of a poem called ‘Chocolate Cake’ by Michael Rosen. It is one of our favourites!  

We hope you all have a wonderful, restful Easter break.

Best wishes,

The KS1 Team

Parent Feedback


Hardwick and Cambourne Primary School has really impressed us as parents by producing incredibly engaging topics which motivate our child. They regularly come out of school animated about what they have been learning about during the day and they especially love imparting their newfound knowledge onto others about their topic.


The KS1 teachers go above and beyond to ensure that a healthy balance of fun is incorporated into the education setting making the environment a positive one that encourages learning. This also extends to special topic/dress up days, planning etc whereby their attitude and preparedness instantly sets the tone for the children to make the most out of their days in school. An example of this was during the space topic when the teachers organised an 'alien spaceship crash' and the character Beegu visited, this was something that our son was very excited about, and he asked to do extra home learning on the subject. As a parent it is lovely to see your child so happy and excited about their day and topics at school. We are grateful to the staff for creating an enriched learning environment. 


We have also found the teaching sessions/workshops with parents (with the children involved) invaluable and very informative. Understanding the teaching methods and seeing the different methods used is vital to enable us to continue the learning process at home.
