Welcome to Year 1

Our Year 1 team is really looking forward to an exciting and happy school year.

Although the transition from Reception to Year 1 can seem to be a little scary, we aim to make this transition as smooth as possible, encouraging learning through play and first - hand experience. As we progress through the school year our curriculum naturally includes more  structured activities and the children will spend longer on their recorded work.

It is important that we provide many of the opportunities that the children have already experienced in the Foundation Stage, including use of a role-play corner and learning outside the classroom. Maths, literacy, phonics and reading activities will take place daily to provide stepping stones for the children's learning and the wider curriculum is taught through topic based activities where appropriate.

In Year 1 the children will be encouraged to develop their independence, to find their own belongings and to be responsible for them. Social skills are very important and the children are encouraged to be kind to each other and to be helpful and polite in class. The children are taught 'Rainbow Fish Rules' and are expected to keep them. We use a reward system in class to help with our classroom management.

We value any parental help greatly and welcome any willing volunteers to help with  activities in the classroom, especially hearing readers and assisting with creative activities. If you feel like you would like to lend a 'helping hand' please be in touch - we would love to see you ! We would like you to read with or to your child everyday. Spellings should also be practised on a daily basis.

It is wonderful to see the children grow in confidence and maturity as they become more independent learners; they always seem to enjoy all the new experiences that they are able to access in Year 1.
