Welcome to Year 1!
Year 1 is an exciting year as the children move from Early Years to Infants. We work hard in Year 1 to introduce the children to an environment of more formal lessons throughout the day whilst having lots of fun at the same time.
We have a strong focus on Reading in Year 1 and expect all children to read at home everyday. This really helps our children develop not only their reading skills, but also supports their writing development. Our children also bring home spellings each week, linked to their Phonics lessons. 'Bear Words' also feature in our homework to help us develop fluency in reading 'key sight words' which need to be read by sight.
We love using stories to learn in different areas of the curriculum and we are extremely creative.
