    Learning in Year 1

     

    The Year 1 curriculum builds upon and extends the experiences that children have had in Reception. The children will have a more formal learning environment in Year 1 and will continue to learn through  play, alongside being involved in exciting topics so that they remain motivated, eager and enthused learners. Phonics will be taught during our 15 minute daily speed sound sessions (morning and afternoon). This will support with reading, writing and spelling. As a school, we follow the Read Write Inc. programme of study. In Year 1 we do expect children to read for around 10-15 minutes at home each night.  The children are expected to become more independent readers and writers as the year advances. If you have any questions or queries about your child’s progress, please don’t hesitate to come and see us after school.

    Read, Write, Inc.

    Year 1 Common Exception Words

     

    During Year 1 children will be expected to spell a number of words correctly in their writing by the end of the year. We will focus on a number on words each term to support them. Please find the Year 1 common exception words below.
