Year One builds upon the children’s experiences from Year R. The classroom is still mobile but activities are often teacher-led and involve the children in working with an adult or independently. Learning friends help children to recognise the kind of learner that they are.
In the mornings, the children have a literacy or maths lesson and then phonics before lunch. In the afternoon the focus changes to topic and science work. The children also have an indoor and outdoor P.E lesson, music, R.E and ICT skills lessons.
In Year One we want the children to be happy and enjoy their learning. We encourage the children to be polite, reflective, to behave well, and to support and respect each other. Children are also rewarded with team points and certificates. On Friday afternoons, they have Golden Time which is a time when they can play.
