Year 1

Welcome to Year 1

I hope you have all had a lovely summer break! I look forward to getting to know the children and helping them transition into Key Stage 1.


Each of the schools terms are themed.


Autumn Term

The EXPLORE term – focusing on geography and science


Spring term

The DISCOVER term – focusing on history


Summer term

The CREATE term – focusing on art and music





In year 1 Maths and Phonics will be taught daily. We follow the White Rose scheme for maths and we follow the Read Write Ink scheme for phonics. If you would like any more information on how to support your child with phonics at home please click on the Read Write Ink page below.


In Geography we will be answering the question "How would an alien find Hollybush?” This involves us learning about where we live, our home addresses, and where our school is.  As the term progresses we will look at the 4 countries of the United Kingdom.


In Science we will be looking Humans as mammals. We will be learning all about our bodies and our senses.


The children's learning has been summarised in school curriculum maps (you can find each map under each subject) which show progression across the school and knowledge organisers (KOs) which are specific to each class.  Use the links below to take you to the KOs that will be being used in the Explore term.
