Year 1 Curriculum

Early Reading and Writing is taught using Read, Write Inc. Phonics.

Read Write Inc. is a method of learning centered around letter sounds and phonics, and we use it to aid children in their reading and writing.

Once children have completed this successfully they move on to ‘The Power of Reading’, a programme designed using high quality books to develop children’s writing skills.

We teach Maths by following the DFE approved framework through the use of “Collins Busy Ant Maths”. This is supported by a number of initiatives including Matheletics.

The rest of the curriculum is designed using Learning Journeys to develop themes of study, linking subject ideas where possible.
