Children participate in daily Read, Write Inc lessons, Literacy and Maths. We involve the children in lots of hands on learning experiences with practical activities to keep to our brains engaged!
Year One is a very busy year, the children have an amazing time learning about animals, space, London, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, plants, woodlands, weather and dinosaurs. We explore a variety of stories, text and poetry, writing and performing our own pieces. The children will investigate number and place value. They will develop their understanding of measure and learn to problem solve in mathematics. Children in Year One are offered a broad and engaging curriculum where they are encouraged to develop their independence, interests and strengths in both their academic progression and social awareness.
