We are so excited to be teaching in Year 1. This is such an important year for your child with the transition from EYFS to Year 1. From the get go, we empower children with resilience; giving everything a go and knowing that our marvellous mistakes help us learn. Our focus in Year 1 is teaching phonics to improve fluency in reading through our scheme Read, Write, Inc. We have a phonics screening check in Summer Term which assesses your child’s understanding of sounds and using these sounds to read words. In Year 1, we celebrate inclusivity through exploring who we are and identifying similarities and differences. We strive to use the outdoors as much as we can to facilitate our learning, especially in geography and science, and we enjoy using Nursery’s impressive outdoor area. Throughout Year 1, we organise activities that encourage team spirit – this is especially woven into our PE curriculum.
