Welcome to Year 1!
In Year 1 we begin the transition from the EYFS curriculum to the National Curriculum. We learn to become more independent in our learning, solve problems and enjoy a challenge.
We continue our phonics journey and begin to learn alternative digraphs in Phase 5. We become fluent readers and enjoy reading at home to our grown-ups.
In English, we use stories and model texts to explore different styles and types of writing. We love to use ‘Talk 4 Writing’ so we can explore texts as a ‘reader’ and as a ‘writer’. We use text maps to help us internalise texts, learn new vocabulary, develop sentence structures and punctuation which we then can use in our own writing.
In maths we develop our number skills and become much more confident in using numbers to 20 and beyond. We use a mixture of practical and written work to help us with our learning. We enjoy a challenge which is usually focused on a reasoning or problem solving activity, this helps us make links with our learning and challenges our thinking.
We love to be creative and are always busy learning about different subjects, we particularly enjoy creating our own masterpieces in art, making models and cooking in DT. We learn about the importance of keeping an active and healthy mind and body and look forward to our Yoga sessions.
We are always working hard and love sharing our learning with our friends and families at home.
