Year 1

What we do:

  • We offer a creative and diverse style of teaching and learning
  • We make learning meaningful and fun ensuring that all children succeed at their own level
  • In KS1 we have an exciting integrated curriculum which engages our children and encourages independent learning both inside and outside of school.  Each topic integrates three main curriculum subjects and applies skills from a further two which encourages children to make connections in their learning.

We follow the National Curriculum 2014 covering the statutory subjects through inspiring and exciting projects.

We follow the 'Letters and Sounds' phonics scheme. We do not use one reading scheme, we have a wide range of phonic and key word based books.


Within these topics, subject areas are taught in line with the school policies.
