Welcome to Year 1
In Year 1, we start to become more independent learners through fun activities and hands-on challenges. We really enjoy developing key skills through motivational and enjoyable learning experiences within a creative, thematic approach! Every half term we have a new, exciting topic.

The Year One Curriculum
In order to ensure that pupils make a smooth transition from Reception and to further develop personal and social skills, communication and language and physical development; teachers include elements of child initiated and play-based learning in Year One.
Units of work are coherently planned and sequenced to ensure broad and balanced coverage of the National Curriculum. There remains a significant focus on the teaching of phonics (using the Letters and Sounds scheme) and reading as well as key elements of number and calculation. Half-termly topics focus on the children's interests and experiences.
