Teaching and learning

At the start of the year, we provide an activity based approach with adult supported groups to ensure a smooth transition from The Early Years Foundation Stage into The National Curriculum.

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: Who was the first person on the moon?
  • Term 2: Who’s afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?
  • Term 3: What do we know about Bristol?
  • Term 4: Where have all of the dinosaurs gone?
  • Term 5: What do we know about Africa?
  • Term 6: Who are pirates?
