Year 1

Welcome

Year 1 is such a fun year to be in! We learn about a variety of interesting and exciting topics; for example  Bears, Space, Under the Sea and Rain Forests, to name a few. 

The most exciting thing about Year 1 is how much every child is valued along with the progress we make in three very important life skill areas;

  • being independent,
  • reading and
  • writing! 

Prepared to be wowed!

Much of year 1's learning is extended through play and being creative, allowing our imagination to develop and excitement lead our learning.

We develop our Discovery themes to engage children in a  variety of  activities that meet the curriculum objectives for Year 1 such as knowing the names of the continents and oceans, special people from the past who have an impact on our lives. We develop art and design skills as we discover about different styles and techniques and we enhance our learning by organising trips to broaden and deepen our experiences.

What can Parents do?

Reading

In Year 1 we expect the children to read at least five times a week recorded with an adult's signature in their reading diaries. Every child in Year 1 is given a book mark with ideas and suggestions for parents to help their child understand and comprehend what they have read. The effect daily reading has on ALL areas of their learning is phenomenal.

Reading is rewarded with rainbow stickers and 'Reader of the Week' certificates.

  

Homework

In Year 1 we believe that learning is at its deepest when the children are enjoying themselves and are excited to learn. All the homework set will be based around our current topic and will often be creative or research based. We find this style of homework allows the children to work closely with adults and siblings at home, which leads to deeper and more enjoyable learning for both child and adult!

 

Spelling and Tables

Once settled into the Year 1 routine the children will receive weekly spellings.
