In Year 1 a child’s journey into Key Stage 1 begins! It’s an exciting year full of new and wonderful experiences. In Year 1 we aim to make the transition as smooth and as enjoyable as possible for the children. In the Autumn term the classroom is set up for continuous provision allowing the children to flow freely between carefully chosen activities. Teachers and Teaching Assistants work with small groups on focused tasks after whole class learning on the carpet. As the year moves on we slowly begin to introduce whole class learning tables where children sit in groups and further develop their independence. Our outdoor area provides us with the chance to continue our learning outside and gives children opportunities to build and plant. Our learning is hands on, giving the children chance to experience as many fun, creative challenges as possible and building a true love for learning.
