Welcome to Year 1! The class teacher in Year 1 is Miss Deary, Mrs Jennings & Mrs Orsman are the Year 1 teaching assistants.
The Year 1 curriculum builds upon and extends the experiences that children have had in Reception. Learning through play will continue to be an important part of the school day, and the children will gradually be eased into more formal learning as the year goes on so that they remain motivated, enthused and eager learners.
In Year 1, the teaching and learning is linked to the schools aims and values. The curriculum aims to allow children to develop their independent learning skills throughout the year. Children will work with support and independently. They will have opportunities to ‘choose’ in the resources area, developing their learning through play. We focus on developing reading for pleasure and there are a range of books in our classroom to allow your child to have a breadth of reading materials.
Our P.E sessions take place on a Thursday afternoon and some children take part in yoga sessions on Monday afternoons. Please can children come to school in their PE kits on Thursdays.
In Year 1 a phonics screening check is taken individually by all children in Year 1 in England. It is designed to give teachers and parents information on how your child is progressing in phonics. It will help to identify whether your child needs additional support at this stage so that they do not fall behind in this vital early reading skill. We will provide you with more information closer to the time.
Reading books are changed Monday, Wednesday and Friday and we encourage children to read every night (just a few pages). Spellings will also be sent home and the yearly spelling overview is shown below.
Keep an eye on this page for further information.
