Each term the theme of learning changes and you will receive a topic talk booklet to help you support your child’s learning at home.
Reading is the key to success in Year 1!!! Read! Read! Read! The children will be part of a comprehensive phonics scheme that will support and help them to embrace the phonics screening check at the end of year 1 with confidence. Reading at home is essential to enhance and consolidate the learning in school. Books are changed twice weekly and as an incentive the children are entered in to a book draw when they have read each week. This enables them to win a book of their choice to enjoy and keep at home as a reward for star reading!
From Autumn 2 term, weekly spelling lists are sent home and tested on a Monday. You will also receive a termly list with some suggestions for ideas to help at home. These words are part of the Year One learning programme and these sessions help the children to apply them independently during writing tasks.
Every learning experience is carefully planned to be inspirational, exciting and fun! Our shared rainforest area compliments the curriculum and is set up for continuous provision and to enhance learning. This helps the children to consolidate core knowledge and skills, and visualise their learning journey.
Watch your child learn the skills to become an Explorer, Scientist, Artist, Designer, Mathematician, Historian, Author, Technology expert, Sports professional or whatever their life choices may be.
