In Class 1, we laugh, learn and have a lot of fun with our friends.

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, learning through play and developing the Characteristics of Effective Learning. In Key stage 1, we follow the National Curriculum.


We learn phonics following the Read Write Inc. scheme and all children have daily phonics or spelling sessions.



We develop our writing skills in all areas of learning. This could be writing in the role play areas using whiteboards and pens or writing outside on the patio using chalk.

Key stage 1 

We develop our writing skills through practical activities that help us to develop a good stamina for writing. We are given weekly targets to help develop our composition, spelling and grammar.


Reading is taught via whole-class, small group and individual teaching strategies and is supported through practice at home, using a variety of reading schemes. We listen to each child reading daily.



We develop our number sense by exploring numbers all around us, singing number songs and finding out the story of each number to 10 and beyond. We use practical equipment like Numicon, to show we understand how numbers work together. Whether we are playing with sand, water or are outdoors, there are always opportunities to learn mathematically.

By the end of Reception, we will be able to read simple texts for pleasure or information, write plans for what we want to do, tell stories and use numbers to count, calculate, measure and tell the time.

Key Stage 1

We investigate numbers, shapes and measures through practical activities and problem solving. Once we are secure in our knowledge, we begin to record our answers in different ways.


On Tuesday, the whole school goes swimming to Capenwray Hall. For this we need our swimming costumes or trunks, a towel and if required, a pair of goggles. We have PE on a Thursday afternoon and for the Autumn Term we are learning dance with Motion Dance. We need our school shorts and t-shirt and pumps as we do this in the Sports Hall.
