In Class 1 we have Year 1 and Year 2 children and our themes change each half term. We try and link our learning to the theme as much as possible and make it as enjoyable and engaging as we can. To find out more about what we cover please look at the Class 1 Curriculum booklet (link below).
Our daily phonics sessions are always lively! The children learn to be confident in blending sounds and segmenting words, which then help them in their reading and writing. All children participate in a phonics session for at least 15 minutes every day. Our plans are based on the current guidance and they are written each week to cater for all the children in the class. It is very helpful if the children practise their letter sounds and tricky words at home.
Our reading books are organised into coloured bands. Each band includes books from different schemes to ensure the children can enjoy a rich variety of texts. For information about how to support your child at home with their reading please go to “Homework”.
We teach Maths every day and as with the other areas of the Curriculum we try to ensure that the Maths lessons are practical and enjoyable. We follow a program to ensure that all the required learning objectives for each year group are covered.
