Welcome to Class 1

Building on foundations

Class 1 starts the year building upon the principles of learning through play and exploration from Reception Class. As the year develops, children start to develop core skills in reading writing and math.

Children have a dedicated Phonic session each morning that follows the Letters and Sounds scheme whilst incorporating resources from the Read Write Inc program and Jolly Phonics. This helps to prepare children for the year 1 Phonic Screening at the end of the year. 

The learning in all areas of the National Curriculum is achieved through a variety of small group and whole class teaching. 

Autumn term learning

During this term, Class 1 is joining with the whole school topic of Earth, Wind and Fire. 

A History day will take the children back to the great fire of London, where children will learn about how the fire started, why it spread so quickly and caused so much damage and discover some of the stories of the people who witnessed the event.
