Year 1

Mrs L Robinson & Miss L Ridley

Welcome to Year 1


In Year 1 we cover lots of different and exciting topics as we introduce children to the subjects of the curriculum.  We base much of our English and Maths work around our topics.

The children develop into independent learners during the course of the year and become more able readers and writers.  We write for lots of different purposes including letters, lists, stories and non fiction reports.  We take part in Guided Reading every day which helps us to improve our reading skills.

In our Maths work we cover a wide range of calculation strategies in addition and subtraction.  We introduce the concept of simple multiplication and division.  We cover work on different ways of measuring and the names of properties of 2D and 3D shapes.  We also take part in weekly mental maths and problem solving activities.
