Year 1 2021 - 2022

Miss Nicholson

Our aim is to ensure that the children experience a smooth transition from the Foundation Stage to Key Stage 1. The Year 1 curriculum builds upon and extends the experiences that the children have had in Reception. Learning through play will continue to be an important part of the school day and the children will gradually be eased into more formal learning as the year goes on so that they remain motivated, enthused and eager learners.

We offer children time to consolidate their learning both with the indoor and outdoor provision. This ethos enables our children to be independent learners and take pride in their work. The curriculum is delivered through a topic so that the children remain engaged in their learning. 

In Year 1 the children will have the chance to work independently and they will also have focused whole class teaching: including English (Reading, Writing and Phonics), Maths and Theme work.

The Staff

Miss Nicholson - Class Teacher

Mrs Kilbride, Ms Lyons and Mrs Stephenson - Teaching Assistants

The Indoor Environment

The indoor environment has many different areas for our children to explore and develop their learning, incorporating opportunities for Literacy and Numeracy. The children have access to a variety of resources that can be used independently or with an adult. As the children settle in during the Autumn term, they will be introduced to challenges which they can complete indepedently or with support. Children will receive a 'Challenge passport' for them to evidence their completed challenges. 

The Outdoor Environment

The outdoor environment is equally as important in Year 1 and it ensures a smooth transition from the Foundation Stage. The outdoor area offers children the freedom to explore and for doing things in different ways and on different scales. This can be done independently or through an adult led activitiy.
