Hi all I would really like your honest opinions as I am having a dilemma. I last taught in KS1 several years ago, most recently I have taught upper KS2 (mostly Y6) for a few years. Although I enjoy the interactions with the children and the level of teaching, I am wondering whether it would be a good thing for me to work in a different phase as it's such a while since I have. As lots of things in teaching have changed since I taught KS1 - I would really like to know what the main differences are between teaching KS2 and KS1. I can only rely on sketchy memories and these don't take into account new initiatives etc. I thought Year 2 might be a good move as with the Year 6 experience of SATs and most of my career having been in KS2 I can help with the year 2 assessments and transition to Year 3. So - what is different? What's better or worse in KS1 compared to KS2? Thanks a lot, sparkly.
