Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

Year 1 is our first step into Key Stage One. We learn through a mix of play, group work and independent learning. We are split between two classes – Donaldson and Rosen. As a year group, we spend lots of time together – free flowing, playing together at break and lunch as well as during PE and Learning Focus lessons. This year, we become more independent, developing our Phonics and Reading skills as well as our understanding of basic number.

Each term, our learning is led by our ‘Learning Focus’. This means that in all lessons, we are able to make learning links to all other areas to the curriculum. We work together in our corridor with Year 2 and throughout the year, we have joint celebrations, trips and performances! In the Summer term, we have a National Phonics screening. This involves reading and decoding real and alien words.

The documents below details some of the skills and topics that are taught each term.
