Welcome to Year One


In Year One this term our learning challenge is 'Can you be an animal detective?'

We will be learning all about our bodies and learning about different animals.


 If you if you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to speak to any member of the Year One Team. 


Year One children learn to have a phonetic approach to their reading through daily phonic lessons.  Children learn sounds made by a letter or letters before blending the sounds together (from left to right) to read a word.  

Guided Reading sessions help develop fluent reading, aid comprehension skills and enable children to read for enjoyment.

Children may select a book to take home from our well resourced School Library.

Children are able to choose their own reading books to take home.

We have a cosy reading corner in the classroom.

Teaching and Learning In Year One


Our learning challenge has an emphasis on science and personal, social and emotional. The children will be learning all about their bodies, senses, feelings and developing friendships.

The children will have a hospital in the home corner where they can use their imagination to bring the learning challenge to life!
