Welcome to Year 1
Leaving Reception behind and starting Year 1 is a big jump for the children. The learning is mostly based on hands on activities using practical resources. The emphasis in Year 1 is on Phonics. The children are expected to take the Phonics Screening test. We encourage children to develop more independence and resilience towards their learning. The day is more structured and we follow the statutory schemes for learning. Year 1 is the foundation of primary schooling and therefore we believe that happy children are happy learners.
