Welcome to Year One, Elephant Class!
Welcome to Key Stage 1! In Year 1 we take the first steps from the Early Years curriculum to the ever-so-slightly more formal National Curriculum. The learning in Key Stage 1 is more teacher led than in Reception, but we don't forget about the benefits of holistic, play-based learning, and so our timetable involves a healthy mix of both, including a lot of time outdoors on the grounds and in our outdoor learning area.
We cover a range of cross-curricular topics in Year 1, starting with 'Once Upon a Time' and 'If You Could Go Anywhere' in the Autumn term, 'Time Travellers' in the Spring term, and 'Down at the Bottom of the Ocean' and 'African Explorers' in the Summer term.
