Our Year One

Hello, my name is Miss Turner and I am year group leader for Year 1.

The Year 1 curriculum builds upon and extends the experiences that children have had in Reception. It is a very important year; it is the year that provides the children with a more structured approach to education which will allow them to take ownership of their own learning and development. The children will have a more formal learning environment but they will continue to learn through exploration, alongside being involved in exciting topics so that they remain motivated, enthused and eager learners.

Year One

In Nursery we follow the Early Years Framework. We base all of our classroom activities around the children’s individual needs linking to the 7 areas of learning. The Nursery staff develop learning through practical and engaging experiences such as cooking, local visits and trips as well as inviting a range of visitors into school.

We aim to make activities creative and develop a child’s passion for exploring the world around them.

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.

In English, pupils will learn about using senses / instructions whilst in Science they will be building upon this by learning about how we use our senses.
