Year 1 2019 - 2020
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.
Please feel free to email any photos of learning at home or news that you would like to share to firstname.lastname@example.org
We will start homework in January which will be given out on a Friday. The purpose is for children to be able to consolidate an aspect of learning from that week. Please do not spend a long time (20 mins max) on it if your child is finding it challenging. We would much prefer you to discuss and enjoy the activity and we can revisit it at another time. We would welcome any messages from you about how the learning went on our class DoJo.
