Welcome to Year One!
In Year 1, we continue to build on the children’s knowledge through a balance of structured teaching and child initiated activities.
The teaching of phonics continues to be a key focus to support the development of the children’s reading and writing. Their skills of decoding will be measured towards the end of the year in the phonics-screening test.
As the year progresses, we focus on developing the children’s independence to aid a smooth transition into Year 2.
