Year 1 Curriculum

Our experienced and highly dedicated teachers and assistants in Year 1 pride themselves on their creative approach to teaching. In Year 1 the majority of children have made the transition from the Early Years Foundation Stage to the New National Curriculum. In order to foster a love of learning, our teaching staff provide the children with first hand experience of a creative curriculum where all pupils are engaged in their learning through stimulating and exciting topics.  They have opportunities to deepen their knowledge and understanding through exciting English and maths topics, reading, music, and role-play.

We recognise that each child is special and unique. Creatively, we aim to embed the key skills in reading, writing, spelling grammar and maths that will enable them to excel in all subjects. We continue to have a focus on phonics. Progress is carefully monitored and we have dedicated daily phonics sessions, which are tailored to every child’s need.

We also ensure that the children have the skills they need to be a successful member of our modern British society. We ensure they have an understanding of different beliefs and cultures and learn acceptance, tolerance and respect towards others.
