Year 1

In Year 1, you will find Miss Capewell, Mrs Finnegan and Mr Atkin.

In Year 1, the children are transitioning from learning through play to a more structured approach. Our curriculum is full of opportunities for speaking and listening, role play, exploring, discovering and reasoning.

We enjoy manipulating the equipment to learn new ideas within our ‘Inspire Maths’ sessions and learn to prove how we solve problems. We use the ‘Talk for Writing’ approach to learn story structures and how to compose our own ideas before writing. The children learn to map and act out stories that they become very familiar with in order to create their own piece of writing.

Each term is centred on a theme. In the afternoons, we learn through a cross curricular approach with a multiple subject focus. We endeavour to provide active learning with many outdoor experiences.
