Welcome to Year 1
During the first half term in Year 1 our focus is the smooth transition from the Early Years Foundation Stage into Key Stage 1. We achieve this through a carousel approach to learning, utilising the areas inside and outside the Year 1 classrooms. Our topic during this time is ‘ourselves’ and after half term, when our approach becomes more formal, our main topic is ‘toys and games’ with the highlight being a visit to Milestones Museum. In the spring term, our focus moves to the outdoors as we explore our local area and where we live, resulting in us constructing a model of our own homes. During the summer term, we investigate weather and seasons. Other highlights for the year are topics such as the ‘Great Fire of London’ and ‘Traditional tales’ and trips to the Synagogue and to Wisley Gardens.
