Year 1

During Year One children build on the skills they have acquired in the Early Years Foundation Stage to become independent and active learners. To aid transition from EYFS to KS1 and given their most recent experiences in the Reception Class, teaching and learning will initially be organised in a style that is familiar to the children. As the year progresses, the timetable will gradually become more structured and formal, preparing them for the challenges of both KS1 and KS2.

In Year 1 we aim to ensure that ‘work’ is both practical and fun. We expect the children to work hard, commit to their learning and make excellent progress. They will be encouraged and well supported by the Y1 team. We appreciate all the support and encouragement that we know you will provide.

Children will rapidly develop their formal Literacy and Mathematical skills and throughout the year we will cover a variety of topics within our creative curriculum. This will be supplemented by school based workshops and school trips to aid the pupils learning; these will include a ‘Slime’ workshop, a visit from the Blunder Bus Theatre Company at the end of the year, a visit to Trent Park and much more!
