Meet our Year 1 classes...
Class Teachers: Miss Rehman (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Class Teacher: Miss Sarang
Class Teacher: Miss Yalof
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.
If you would like to view the National Curriculum overview please click here.
We teach all of the above through focused topic work which is laid out below:
Autumn 1 - Jurassic Adventures!
Autumn 2 - Alien Invasion!
Spring 1 and 2- The Enchanted Forest
Summer 1 and 2- 'Scrub the deck!' (A pirate adventure)
Supersonic Phonic Friends
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 child 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.
This year we have signed up to a new phonics scheme called Supersonic Phonic Friends. You can find a link to the website here:
We will be sending out reading books that align with this new scheme and we will be keeping parents updated about the sounds the children are learning through newsletters posted on Class Dojo.
PE is on Tuesdays
Children can come to school dressed in their P.E Kits. Please make sure your child's name is on all clothes.
Homework is due every Thursday. Your child must complete their spellings and maths homework every week and 1 item from the Homework grid every other week. We are going to be asking you to submit all homework online via Class Dojo portfolio for the grid homework and spellings.
3 brilliant questions to ask your child at the end of their school day:
What made you happy today?
What made you sad today?
What new thing did you learn today?
