Year 1 is an amazing year and we can't wait to share it with your child! In Year 1 your child will be making the exciting transition from Early Years to Key Stage One. Our mornings will gradually become more structured with daily Maths, English, Guided reading and Phonics sessions. Phonics is a key element of Year 1 life, and we practise regularly to ensure all our children are equipped to decode and blend words. Our aim is to ensure all children reach their full potential and develop a love of learning. This involves building a curriculum that suits each child in our class. Our foundation subjects are in the afternoons and we plan to ensure they are fun, inspiring and engaging to find out what we are learning please read our curriculum overview.
