Welcome to Year 1!

In Year 1 we have a continuous provision which mirrors the Early Years model to provide a seamless transition that ensures children are happy and enthusiastic learners. 

Children access the provision independently, choosing to play and learn about things that interest them. Activities in the provision are carefully planned to allow children to be active, autonomous and unique learners. 


In Year 1 we follow the RWI scheme. Children in Year 1 continue to become confident readers through daily phonics sessions. Reading  books, closely matched to the children's learnt sounds, are sent home every three days to be shared with parents/ carers. When you listen to your child read please send the class teacher a Dojo message. Your child will then receive a Reading Dojo point! We are pleased with the progress that the children are making! 

Please see the Medium Term Plan for more details on curriculum coverage. If you would like to find out more about our planning, please ask Miss Barton.  

Year 1 have P.E on Wednesday with our P.E specialist. Due to current restrictions, we ask for children to come into school wearing their P.E kits. As we approach winter, children can wear jogging pants and their school jumpers. Year 1 also have yoga on Friday afternoons with Debs. Children do not need their P.E kits for yoga. 

Homework in Year 1 consists of English and Maths based tasks along with spellings. Spellings are based previously learnt Phonics ‘green words’ and a ‘red word’. Homework is sent home on Thursday to be returned on Wednesday. 

Please feel free to ask any questions or queries you may have.
