Our Aims in Year One


In Year One we aim to create a smooth transition from the heavily play-based learning of Reception, working gradually towards whole class lessons in readiness for Year Two. 


We will continue to build on the skills your children have developed in Reception, encouraging a growing independence and confidence to work in alone, pairs, small groups and teams. Developing vocabulary, speaking and listening form a fundamental part of our lessons in all areas of the curriculum.


Below their is a copy of our Curriculum Booklet for the current half term, which includes information about PE days, home reading and ideas for helping your child at home. There is also a copy of this term's Home Learning Project ideas, which is due to be sent into school during the last week of this half term, 18th October, when children will have an opportunity to share their Home Learning with their classmates.



‘Children are captivated by their learning’, ‘The well-being of pupils is at the heart of the school’, ‘School is a calm place - pupils are polite, courteous and well-mannered’
