Year 1

“May our children be our builders.”

"If not me, then who?"

Miss Cohen and Mr Barker would like to welcome you and your child to Year 1. We hope that your child will enjoy their time in Year 1, building on the skills and knowledge they have learnt in Reception. We aim to ensure that every child feels happy and safe and is successful in achieving their best and making good progress throughout the year. 

Timetable

A typical day in year 1 comprises of:

  • Soft start activity (Reading, maths or handwriting focus)

  • English  

  • Break (15 minutes)

  • Maths 

  • Lunch (1 hour)

  • Phonics

  • Topic/Circle time/PSHE/PE/Computing

Curriculum

It is important that our children learn through cross-curricular links and real experiences. We appreciate that children learn by doing and being able to take an active part in their learning, which will enable them to build effectively on their interests and previous experiences. To find out more about the exciting learning that will take place in each class every term, please see our Topic Overviews below. This document will also help support any home-learning.
