Curriculum Plan 

So that everyone knows what we will be learning about this year, below is our curriculum plan. 

Y1 Homework 

To support our classroom learning, each half term Mrs Crosbie and Mrs Bradshaw will give us a homework project.  

This is the homework organiser for this term.

Enrichment

This term, Year 1 will participate in a virtual workshop with 'Tommy Top Hat' who will be showcasing toys from the past.  Children will be introduced to an old toybox and Tommy will demonstrate how the toys inside work.  He will also explain what materials the toys have been made out of. 

Termly Class Newsletter

Each term Mrs Crosbie and Mrs Bradshaw will send parents a newsletter.  This is our most recent newsletter:-

If you would like any copies of the documents on this page, the school office will be happy to print them for you.  

Phonics and reading 

Systematic synthetic daily phonics is taught following the Read Write Inc Programme throughout Early Years and Key Stage 1, beginning in the summer term of Pre-school. Pupils are grouped according to ability across the year groups. Progress is tracked throughout the year by the early reading and phonics lead and groupings are adjusted accordingly. Pupils in Year 1 have a National Phonics Screening Test in June. Pupils who do not achieve the expected standard re-sit the test the following year when they are in Y2.
When pupils complete the Read Write Inc phonics programme they begin 'No-nonsense spelling'.  This programme is taught throughout Key Stage 2.  If children complete the Read Write Inc programme and still require extra support with phonics in Key Stage 2 they receive  Read Write Inc intervention (Fast Track tutoring - Year 3 & 4 and Fresh Start - Year 5 & 6)

Reading
We use the Read Write Inc reading scheme throughout Early Years and Key Stage 1 where books are fully decodable and correlate with where the child is up to in the scheme.  Children are also sent home a book which is very closely matched to their reading level from Oxford Reading Tree, Project X or Floppy Phonics and a book to read for pleasure with an adult, which will be from the school library.



If you have any questions or would like any further information about the curriculum or how you can further support your child's learning at home then please speak to your child's class teacher.

Year One Photo Gallery & News

17th September 2021 - This week Year 1 went for a walk around our local area as part of our Geography topic.  The children enjoyed spotting the different things we can find in our local area such as different types of houses, shops, factories and offices, traffic lights and post boxes.  In our next Geography lessons we will discuss the importance of these and even draw a map of our local area.
