In Year 1 we provide a more experience-based curriculum up to December, in order for the children to fully transition from the EYFS framework.
We teach the children writing, English spelling, punctuation and grammar (ESPG), mathematics, phonics, science, history, geography, computing, Personal health social and emotional education (PHSE), physical education (PE) and religious education in our curriculum.
At the end of Year 1, there is a national phonics screening check to assess the child’s decoding and blending skills.
Here are the termly topic focuses for the children in Gruffalo and Zog classes.
Term 1: Once upon a time
Term 2: Celebrations
Term 3: The things that people do
Term 4: Our local area
Term 5: Pirates
Term 6: Holidays
