Year 1 Curriculum

After a successful introduction to our school during their Foundation Stage year, pupils enter Year 1 where they begin to acquire the knowledge outlined in the National Curriculum for Key Stage 1 and 2. 

Whilst daily phonics, Talk for Writing and a mastery approach to Mathematics continue, our pupils begin to learn about the wider subject domains through structured  sessions incorporating both guided and independent practice of knowledge. 

Where possible links and connections are made explicit within our Year 1 curriculum.  New material is presented in small steps with lots of opportunity for practise and application.

The following documents outline the minimum amount of knowledge that will be taught to Year 1 pupils throughout each unit.
