Teaching and learning

In year one, the children will be transitioning away from play-based learning and beginning to work more independently at their tables.

Towards the end of year one, all children will take part in the national phonics screening check. We will be holding parents meetings during the year, where you can learn more about this.

We will cover a variety of exciting learning opportunities through our topics:

  • Term 1: What’s it like where we live?
  • Term 2: What was life like when our grandparents were children?
  • Term 3: Where in the world do people live?
  • Term 4: Who were the greatest explorers?
  • Term 5: Where do our favourite animals live?
  • Term 6: How did the first flight change the world?

Key Weekly Information

Please bring in your P.E kit on a Monday and leave it in school until Friday.

You should read with your child every day and sign in their reading record book. Children can also earn ‘reading karate bands’ when you sign the sheet which is stuck in the back of the reading record.

You will receive a new homework sheet in their homework books at the start of term each term. The children should complete one of the boxes each week. They will also have spellings to complete ready for the spelling test each Friday. If you have any questions about the new homework system, please do not hesitate to ask Miss Waring.
