Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!


Year 1

Year 1 is an opportunity to experience a breath of education that encompasses a creative curriculum. We are supported in our transition from EYFS in a gradual progression towards a more formal and structured day and style of learning.


We begin to develop our collaborative discussion skills through engaging with high quality texts and are provided with a variety of opportunities to practise our spelling, grammar and reading. We are able to display these well-established skills in completing the phonics screening at the end of the year. Practical learning experiences ensure that we have a secure foundation of mathematical knowledge which we are then able to apply to solve problems and begin explore wider mathematical concepts.
