What the children are learning this year

We strive for a smooth transition between EYFS and Year 1. We believe that this can be achieved through hands on experiential learning in and outside of the classroom.

Curriculum

School Trips

During year 1 we do lots of learning outside of the classroom including these trips:

Trip to the local library
Children have the opportunity to go to the local library and learn where they can find books, the different things you can do at a library and listen to stories.

Trip to St Mary’s church
Children have the chance to visit the local church to learn about what happens in a church. They have the chance to be like the questioner and ask questions.

Local area walk
Children have the opportunity to walk around the local area to look at the environment and see how it changes over the different seasons.

Other trips to be organised to enhance the curriculum. More details to follow.

Supporting Learning at Home

In Year 1, we encourage the children to do as much learning as home at possible. With this in mind, we would be grateful if you could support your child in the following areas:

  • Daily reading
  • Counting to and from 100
  • Reading and writing numbers to 100
  • Counting in 2s, 5s and 10s

Thank you for your continued support!

Class Dojo is an online resource where parents can connect to the day to day learning. It is a secure environment where we can share photos and videos of what we are doing in school.
Google Classroom is an online platform where we will post any homework and home learning for those isolating. For those isolating, there will be live lessons available via Google Meet. (In the process of being set up – more information to follow.)

Online Safety

All children need to learn how to keep themselves safe online. Here are some things you can do:
CEOPS is the best place to go if you wish to report something inappropriate on the internet.
ThinkUKnow is where you can play interactive games and learn more about being safe online.
Kidsmart has lots of information about how you can keep yourself safe online.
For more information and help go to our Online Safety page.
