Year 1
Blackbirds and Robins

Welcome to Year 1

In Year 1 we continue the Foundation Stage ethos of fun, active learning with a rich and varied curriculum. We support the children to gradually become more independent in their learning and their behaviour.

Look out for our information event at the beginning of the autumn term.

Phonics is taught daily in Key Stage One through a range of activities.  We follow the phonics scheme ‘Letters and Sounds’ which teaches children individual sounds and how to blend them for reading and writing.  The children have access to a rich variety of reading schemes and these include ‘Oxford Reading Tree’ and ‘Collins Big Cat’ resources.

Welcome! Here is an overview of the year including the weekly timetable.
