Year 1 2018 - 2019
We are very lucky to have a team of experienced staff who give the children a range of exciting hands on learning experiences.
We aim to create a friendly, nurturing environment in which the children feel safe, secure and comfortable in expressing themselves. By encouraging and valuing the children's interests, we support them in exploring their own learning paths as they move through the year. We want to build on the children's natural curiosity and promote a lifelong love of learning.
Year 1 is a significant year at school as children move from the Early Learning Goals of Nursery and Reception to the National Curriculum. We are committed to making this transition as easy as possible.
In Maths, we continue to develop the children’s understanding of numbers, especially place value, and early calculation. This is achieved with an emphasis on learning through experience and use of games, problem-solving challenges and lots of hands on activities and equipment.
In English we provide lots of opportunities for speaking and listening and role-play to support the children’s writing. The writing activities always relate to our topic and over the year, the children will explore writing in lots of different genres; labels and lists, instructions, poetry, recounts and narrative story writing.
