Year 1

Year 1 is an exciting year for the children (and teachers!). We hope the children will come home full of stories to tell about the interesting things they are learning.

The beginning of Year 1 is all about transition and helping the children to develop greater independence. Early in Year 1 we utilise practical activities for learning and, as the year progresses, children are expected to record their understanding in a variety of ways.

English and Maths planning is based on the National Curriculum 2014. We plan and teach a topic-based curriculum and send out a newsletter each term which contains further details. Our topics are as follows:

Autumn term Time Travellers
Spring term Dig a Little Deeper
Summer term Summer Fun
