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.

** This page is under development and not all the content and documentation is available**




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.
  • We work very closely with the Reception team to ensure the transition from Reception to Year 1 is smooth and comfortable for all children
  • In Year 1 we focus on building independence
  • There will be many opportunities for child initiated learning similar to what they were used to in Reception
  • We will be planning in lots of opportunities for outdoor learning, exploration and enquiry
  • Group and partner work is a big part of learning in Year 1
