Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

Year 1 is led by Mrs Grant and supported by Mrs Kasap.

We recognise that Year 1 is quite a challenging time for pupils and strive to ensure that the transition from Reception to Key Stage 1 is a smooth one. A major focus is of course on phonics, so that the children are ready for the screening check in June. We aim to make phonics fun and interactive and to tie it into all of our learning throughout the day.

Our topics this academic year are:

Term one - Journey Into Space

Term two - London Town

Term three - Exploring China

Term four - Important People from History

Term five - Seasons and Plants

Term six – Looking Forward.

Within each topic we aim for cross curricular links where possible, such as researching in topic for writing in English. This helps us to cover the full curriculum while allowing learning to have a purpose. Pupils enjoy it immensely and watching them grow throughout the year is amazing.
