Curriculum Overview

In Year 1 we follow the national curriculum for all the core subjects including English, Maths, Science and IT.  We use the National Curriculum as a guide to inform our planning of the humanities subjects including History, Geography, Music, PE, Art, RE and DT.

We teach all of the above through focused topic work which is laid out below:

Autumn 1 - Dinosaurs

Autumn 2 - Space

Spring 1 and 2- Enchanted Forest

Summer 1 and 2- Pirates


Jolly Phonics

  In Year 1 all children across the country are expected to sit the Phonics Screening test. This will take place in Summer term.  Throughout the year your children will be taught the sounds they need to know in order to be able to read the words on the test.  For the test the children are asked to read real and 'alien' words to test their phonics knowledge. To help prepare your child there are some links to games and resources below. You can use these to practise blending sounds together. The children have been exposed to these games and know how to use them. 


Dinosaur Egg Phonics

Ob and Bob

Buried Treasure

Dragon's Den
