Mrs Talbot is the team leader in Year 1 and is happy to answer any questions you may have.

In Year 1, we follow the Primary National Curriculum.

We follow READ WRITE INC in KS1 to teach Reading and Writing.

Our main Reading scheme for home reading is the Oxford Reading Tree and we follow Penpals for handwriting. Maths is taught daily with a focus on teaching number skills, counting and the main operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

We teach the other subject areas mainly through our creative topics (see the 2016-17 topic plan below for all the details).In science the children cover specific areas outlined in the curriculum, they are; animals including humans, materials, seasonal change and plants. We incorporate investigations and first hand experiences to ensure that the children develop a love and understanding of the subject.  We follow local Cambridgeshire schemes of work for PSHE and RE and the children are taught e-safety.

Children in Year 1 are supported in any areas of difficulty by our experienced support staff and we target resources such as Pupil Premium or SEN funding carefully to meet individual needs.

Helping at home

Please continue to support your child’s reading by sharing books with them. Ideally your child should be reading each night, for about 5-10 minutes. Please put a comment in the reading record to let us know how your child is getting on. Homework is sent out weekly. Please remember to send your child to school with a water bottle every day.
