Our Year 1 teacher is Mrs Mandy Hyland. Mrs Adelle Buchanan is the HLTA who supports learning and also leads sessions.
The Year 1 curriculum builds upon and extends the experiences that children have had in Reception. Learning will continue to be through a rich and varied curriculum. The children will be eased into more structured learning as the year goes on, so that they remain motivated, enthused and eager learners.
In Year 1 we enjoy taking part in RWI lessons which is our new Phonics programme. These lessons allow the children to apply their knowledge of sounds to their reading and writing. We use the strategies learned in our RWI lessons to enable the children to express their ideas both verbally and in written form.
In Maths we use practical activities to develop the children’s understanding of Mathematical concepts.
In an afternoon we enjoy practising our reading skills during Whole Class Reading and learning in other subjects, through topic based lessons.
