Welcome to Year One. Our webpage provides you with everything you will need to know about life in Year One. We hope that you find it useful, if you have any further questions then please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Year One team.
We aim to make the transition between Reception and Year One a smooth one, by the time your child enters Year One in September they would have had many chances to meet their new teachers and have spent time in their new classes. In order to assist them further with this transition, Year One follows a similar learning pattern to that of Reception. Children will be exposed to a range of play based independent learning opportunities through the areas of learning as well as beginning to be exposed to the Year One National Curriculum.
Children in Year One follow the National Curriculum, this sets out the objectives for all of the subjects. The key areas in the curriculum are as follows: Maths, English, Science, PE, Computing, History, Geography, Religious Education, PSHE, Art and Design and Music. Objectives are taught through topic based learning. We have 6 different topics throughout the year, details of which will be sent to you in the form of a termly newsletter. Throughout the year we will be building up to daily phonics, maths and literacy teaching as well as topic lessons. The amount of sessions the children have weekly will be increased as the weeks go on, this is to aid the transition from Reception to Year One.
