In KS1, every pupil studies subjects prescribed by the National Curriculum, exploiting cross-curricular links where appropriate.  The following link details our overview of topics taught.

PE:
P.E kits only need to go home on a half termly basis.  Children will need to be provided with clothes suitable for outdoor P.E i.e. tracksuits and trainers, as well as an indoor kit – plimsolls, a plain T shirt (either white or the colour of their house – green (Sober Hall), red (Round Hill), blue (Quarry Farm) or yellow (Myton Farm) and shorts). If children wear earrings they will need to preferably be removed or covered with tape/plasters from home on their P.E days.
The homework will be tailored to your child’s individual learning needs and help them to progress towards their end of year objectives. Please read with your child every evening as this has an enormous impact on their progress across the entire curriculum.
Year 1 Maths Homework will be sent home if class work needs consolidating.
Year 1 Literacy / Spelling Homework given in RWI groups every Friday to be returned by the following Wednesday.

 

We are very much looking forward to working with your child and hope that he/she will enjoy their time in Year 1. We work best when there is an effective partnership with parents so, if you have any concerns, or wish to discuss an aspect of your child’s education, please do not hesitate to get in touch. If you wish to pass on a message, we have helpful staff on the entrance to Y1 every morning who will be happy to assist you.
