In Year 1 during the Autumn Term, we continue with the Early Years Foundation Stage approach of integrated learning experiences. This helps to settle the pupils into Key Stage One. Pupils are encouraged to access activities independently and participate in teacher-led activities.
In the Spring Term the class has a more formal approach to learning and teaching: pupils are asked to work on their own, in pairs and in groups. Again, we encourage independence with all activities.
During the year, we invite parents to a Christmas Performance and Read Write Inc workshops to further shared understanding of our phonics programme and provide parents with more guidance to assist children in their language and reading development.
Homework is considered to be an important element of the child’s learning experience. Weekly homework will typically include reading, spelling and either a piece of Literacy or Numeracy as well as daily Read Write Inc tasks. Links are provided in our weekly newsletter for online Read Write Inc lessons for parents.
