Welcome to Year 1, where the magic of Phonics takes center stage in our daily routine—twice a day, every day! Our vibrant FFT Success for All Phonics scheme is a dynamic and effective program designed to improve literacy skills among our young learners. Through a rich array of resources and materials, we craft engaging and impactful phonics lessons, setting our children on the thrilling path to reading success.

In the morning, we delve into tailored English and Maths sessions, thoughtfully designed to meet the unique needs of each child in our classes. These sessions, which emphasise independence while valuing adult support, ensure a solid foundation in both subjects.

In our English sessions, we embark on a journey of creativity and expression. Our approach is centered around fostering a love for language, reading, and writing. From exciting storytelling activities to hands-on writing exercises, we ignite the spark of imagination in every child. Our carefully curated curriculum includes a variety of genres, enabling our young writers to explore and develop their communication skills with enthusiasm.

Turning our attention to Maths, we embrace a diverse range of resources and problem-solving techniques, guided by the acclaimed White Rose Maths Mastery approach. Our focus is not just on mastering mathematical concepts but also on cultivating a deep understanding and love for the subject. Through interactive activities and real-world problem-solving scenarios, we empower our young mathematicians to think critically and develop a strong mathematical foundation.

In Year 1, we especially love delving into the rich tapestry of history. Our young learners embark on fascinating journeys through time, exploring the evolution of soldiers, the transformation of transport, and the changing landscape of toys throughout the ages. This captivating exploration adds a dynamic and engaging dimension to our curriculum, fostering a deep appreciation for the world’s historical narrative.Mondays, our dedicated ‘Curriculum Day,’ mark the beginning of these exciting historical adventures. In the morning, our curious minds delve into the realms of Science and Geography or History, uncovering the mysteries of the natural world or stepping back in time to discover the stories that have shaped our existence. The afternoon brings an enriching session of Personal, Social, Health, and Citizenship Education (PSHCE), where our young ones not only develop essential life skills but also learn to navigate the complexities of their social and emotional well-being.

Throughout the week, various afternoons are dedicated to other key curriculum subjects, including Handwriting, Spelling, and Guided Reading. Additionally, booster groups and targeted interventions are in place to boost confidence, reinforce learning, and maximize individual potential.

Your support is invaluable in nurturing your child’s resilience and love for learning. Engaging in reading, homework, and discussing their learning experiences with you is a vital component of their growth and development. Thank you for partnering with us on this exciting educational journey!
