Welcome to Year 1
Cherry Class and Walnut Class
We are planning through a creative curriculum. The Creative Curriculum balances both teacher-directed and child-initiated learning, with an emphasis on responding to children's learning styles and building on their strengths and interests. It is the best way to engage and enthuse children in the learning process.
We are starting our term looking at phonics as this will be year 1's focus; ensuring that all children are working at the correct levels in both daily phonic and reading sessions. Reading books will be coming home shortly and we ask you to listen to your child read every day, even if it is only for 5 minutes. Please write on the 'home page' on the day your child reads.
