About Year 1

The Year 1 curriculum will build upon and extend the EYFS curriculum. Although the children are in a more formal learning environment in Year 1 they will continue to learn through exploration, experience, challenge and investigation using both the classroom and our outdoor learning environment.
Our topic topics will include learning about ourselves and each other as well as learning about animals and habitats and learning about how things work. The children will also be learning Spanish so don’t be surprised if they suddenly start singing Spanish songs or counting in Spanish. As staff we enjoy the challenge of teaching in different ways even though some of us have been teaching for quite a while. We are looking forward to the adventure of learning and growing together with the children in our care.

Year 1

The Year 1 team works closely with Reception teachers to prepare for a smooth transition. We aim to manage the transition from Reception to Year 1 in a gradual, staged approach, which allows the children to adapt during the first half of the Autumn Term.


During Year 1 Children will become more confident and competent in reading and writing. Phonics is taught every day for 20 minutes to support reading, writing and spelling. In Year 1 all children will have a phonics screening check during June and the results will be reported to you in the summer term.


In numeracy we focus on the numbers 0 – 100. Children will learn number bonds to 10 and begin to ‘count on’. We also learn about the place value of numbers and how to add and subtract.


For further information you can view our Curriculum here.

Autumn term is packed full of exciting new subjects. This term we will be looking at traditional tales in English as well as stories with patterns and rhyme.


In Science we will be focussing on learning about how our heart works as well as where we can find living things.
