Year 1 is taught by Mrs Staines and supported by our TA Mrs Hamilton. The transition from Foundation stage is made really easily, as the Autumn Term is spent combining familiar activities from Foundation Stage whilst gradually introducing new activities.
The classroom is a familiar environment with lots of areas of continuous provision such as a Writing area, Maths area and a Construction area which helps the children settle in really quickly. We continue to focus on Phonics, Literacy and Numeracy and we also begin to sit on the carpet for longer periods of time.
As well as Literacy and Numeracy we explore some exciting topics such as Fantasy worlds in Literacy, old toys and castles in History as well as creating some healthy foods in DT. Where possible, links are made with our topic during our studies in other subjects.
