Welcome to Year 1!

In Year 1, our children make the exciting transition from Early Years to Key Stage One in a gradual progression towards a more formal and structured day and style of learning. It is an opportunity to experience a breadth of education that encompasses a creative curriculum.
We encourage our children to become increasingly independent and they enjoy learning through focused tasks and structured play. Our topics are chosen to encourage them to explore and develop their understanding of the world, grow in confidence and self-belief through creativity, while acquiring the early building blocks of learning for life.
Our children begin to develop collaborative discussion skills by engaging with high quality texts and they are provided with a variety of opportunities to practise and apply their reading and writing skills. These well-established skills are displayed when completing the phonics screening check at the end of the year.
