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, 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 children’s decoding and blending skills.
