Welcome to our year 1 classes!

We have had a fantastic start the the year in Year One!!! All the children have settled really quickly and have settled back into school life with ease! I am so proud of them all. 


Year One is a new experience for all of us. I have had the privilage of moving up from Reception class with my previous class to start our Year One journey together. We have a new environment based around continuous provision, so the environment should still have a similar feel to reception. We have a huge outdoor area we will be developing together over the year. I am very excited that we are going to have a fantastic Year 1, despite the pressures and stress that is going on in the world around us this year. My aim is to create a class that feel safe, happy and secure in order to achieve fantastic learning this year!!!!


This year our long term plan is below. This may change as the year goes on as we aim to follow the children's own interests as well as give them amazing experiences.

Our timetable is a mix of adult-led and class inputs with long periods of child initiated learning. The children have the choice of inside and outside learning at all times during continuous provision, and in all weathers. We have short whole class inputs followed by adult led and independant task. During Autumn term they will have 2 maths and 2 literacy activities to do. One is adult led and is teaching the skills and the second task is designed to be independant putting into practice everything they learnt the previous week as a shadow group. When they are not in a group they go straight in to continuous provision where there is resources which they are familiar with and also enhanced resources based either on their interests or the skills they have learnt in previous weeks.
