In Year One the children are taught the National Curriculum subjects: English, (reading, writing, speaking and listening), Mathematics, Science, Information and Communications Technology, Music, Design and Technology, Geography, History, Physical Education and Religious Education as well as Personal and Social Education, and Philosophy, The school meets all the statutory requirements for content and assessment of the current National Curriculum. We often teach these subjects in a cross curricular way that is meaningful, relevant and motivating for the children.
We plan according to the interests and needs of the children and no two years are the same. We have an overarching theme each term that inspires learning. Each new theme is introduced with a ‘stunning starter’ and ends with a ‘fantastic finisher’. We aim to have at least one ‘memorable moment’ each week.
