KS 1

KS 1

Our Key Stage 1 program provides students in Years 1 and 2 a strong foundation in academics, as well as regular opportunities to engage in performing arts activities. 

At BBIS, children have a thirst for learning, and as a caring small school, we are passionate about our children loving school and feeling nurtured and happy. At BBIS, we help our children flourish and grow through the curriculum we provide, with fun group work, that is student centred and designed to meet each xhild at the level they are at.

We are committed to developing our young learners to be the best they can be, whether they are budding young writers, performers, artists, musicians, sportspeople, scientists, or mathematicians. Teachers structure learning experiences carefully so that our children always feel encouraged and motivated, in a fun and caring environment. We are excited to have introduced a ’forest school” learning experience so outdoor learning can also happen every week.

We follow a topic-based approach to learning by exploring a question or statement. In English, children are taught different genres around a book or film that is topic related so they can be completely immersed in their learning. We want to encourage a passion for reading a wide variety of differing texts and, through this, develop their vocabulary.

As part of this approach, we provide our children with a range of themed days and educational visits, as well as inviting visitors to the school to really bring the topic to life and engage all learners. We also invite parents into school on a termly basis so they can engage first-hand with what their children are learning and share this at home.

The National Curriculum

A national curriculum is set for each subject and each year group. This ensures children at BBIS get the best education possible. The national curriculum is comprised of three core subjects — English, mathematics, and science. Alongside these core subjects, the national curriculum also has a number of foundation subjects, including:

Physical Education (PE)

For mathematics teaching, we follow a maths mastery approach. Teaching in this manner enables pupils to develop a deep, secure knowledge and understanding of mathematics at each stage of their learning, no matter their ability.


Budapest British International School is committed to developing confident, globally aware, motivated and self-disciplined learners, who can realize their full potential and make a responsible contribution to the world, in a caring, arts oriented teaching and learning environment.
