Welcome to Year 1 Cuckoos

Welcome to Year One, Cuckoo Class!

Welcome Year 1 Cuckoo Class! We take the first steps from the Early Years curriculum to the ever-so-slightly more formal National Curriculum. The learning in Key Stage 1 is more teacher led than in Reception, but we don't forget about the benefits of play-based learning.

Throughout the year we will be building on our skills we learnt in EYFS for all subjects. We will start in term 1 with the topic of 'Where's Wally?' We will be looking at the surrounding village and area and getting to know our area. 

In maths we follow the White Rose scheme of learning and we will be encouraging learning through use of manipulatives, before moving to pictorial methods then onto more abstract and written methods.

In Literacy we will be heavily focusing on sentence structure and looking at writing sentences on a range of topics and information types. Alongside this we use our Monster Phonics to continue to introduce the sounds to children.
