We follow the National Curriculum 2014. You can access information about the curriculum for Year 1 in the documents below. If you require any further information about the curriculum, you can access the Department for Education website, take a look at our Year 1 class page or contact school and request to speak to our Year 1 teachers.
Reading - We follow the Oxford Reading Tree reading scheme. It is recognised that children who read regularly at home make the most progress in reading. We would therefore encourage all children to read at home each evening from a variety of books and sources, and would ask that the reading record books are completed.
Phonics - The children will access Read, Write Inc to learn sounds. This is a phonics scheme that is used throughout the infant department and is delivered most mornings.
Year 1 Phonics Screening
At the end of Year 1, the children with sit a Phonics test to check their understanding of sounds through their ability to decode and blend real and pseudowords. The pass rate for this test changes each year and is not given to school until the Phonics Screening is completed. If your child does not pass the Phonics Screening check, they will continue with Read, Write Inc. in Year 2 and will be tested again at the end of Year 2.
