Curriculum – Year 1
Year Group Overview
Year 1 is the start of key stage 1, and children start working within the National Curriculum, they are now taught English, Maths, phonics, Science, RE, History, Geography, Computing, Art, DT, PE, Games, SEAL and Music. Please look at our curriculum pages to find out further information. At the end of year one, the children will take a statutory phonics screening check which assesses their ability to use their phonics skills when reading. The children are taught phonics daily and you can support this through practising at home. Check out this great website: http://www.phonicsplay.com/ to support your child’s development.
Reading at home is another fundamental skill in which we encourage you to read with your child daily at home, both their reading book and other stories that you can share together. All children will be sent home with reading journals and a reading book for their specific level.
Reading journals will be looked at each Wednesday and books changed then too, so please support us by reading with your children each night if possible and completing their reading journals.
Homework in Year 1
Homework will usually consist of a maths piece, some English focused work- such as writing or a SPAG- (spelling, grammar and punctuation) activity- and a piece of phonics homework. Handwriting will also be given out over the course of the year to help the children practice their pre-cursive/cursive handwriting.
Homework will be given out each Monday and is due in the following Monday.
