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 'Garden of England' and 'Cops and Robbers' in the Autumn term, 'In the Toy Chest' and 'Jungle Explorers' in the Spring term, and 'If You Go Down to the Woods Today...' and 'Voyagers' in the Summer term.
Mrs Found will be teaching art every Thursday afternoon.
