Welcome to Year 1!
Class Teachers are Mrs Lawford, Mrs Luckhurst and Mrs Passmore and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Stanley.
Year 1 marks the start of the Key Stage 1 curriculum which builds on all of the wonderful learning the children have experienced whilst in the Early Years Foundation Stage. We largely follow the National Curriculum but with the freedom to steer learning journeys ‘off-track’ to foster individual interests and the unexpected. The children continue to be taught in mixed-ability classes with activities differentiated to meet individual academic needs and learning styles. Children are heard to read every day and are expected to read every night at home too. All of the children’s progress is carefully tracked through both weekly teacher assessments as well as through termly standardised assessments that ensure their individual learning journeys can be carefully planned to ensure they are all heading in the right direction.
