Together we nurture the genius in everyone
Year 1 Curriculum: 2016/2017
We have created 4 exciting themes to offer all children an irresistible invitation to learning! Every child will be enabled to achieve, ensuring rich and meaningful coverage of the New National Curriculum.

We teach Phonics using a variety of creative, fun and interactive resources to ensure the National Curriculum Programmes of Study (for word reading and spelling) are taught. Children learn to apply their phonic skills in all reading and writing across the curriculum.
We value the love of reading and develop children's skills needed to become fluent and lifelong readers. As well as high quality, rich and varied texts used to inspire and teach reading in class children are also supported with our home reader scheme; a mixture of Floppy's Phonics (Oxford Reading Tree) and Rockets and Stars (Rigby).
