Year 1

As our children move from the Foundation Stage into Key Stage 1, Year 1 staff continue a creative approach to the curriculum. Literacy and Numeracy lessons often link to topics. We aim to encourage the children to become more independant to help with their work and to build their confidence. School trips, link to the topics, are taken once or twice a year to places such as Blackpool Zoo and Priory Woods.

Work on Read, Write Inc (the phonics programme followed at Templemoor) is continued in ability groups across the year group. Guided reading and writing takes place on a weekly basis. Children may be withdrawn 1 to 1 and/or in small groups if necessary to support SEN, EAL and more able children.
