Year 1 and 2 is not only important being some children's first year in KS1 but also to get Year 2 children ready for the transition from infants into juniors. For Year 1, the first 2 terms are important as a "transition" from the play-based, child initiated curriculum of Early Years to a more subject and topic based way of learning. Within the whole class, we work on developing greater independence and also how we can all work together.

We plan three different trips during the course of our year to support and inspire our children's learning. We provide them with fantastic opportunities to learn and to have fun.

Topics we cover include:

  • Reuse, Reduce and Recycle (looking at how we are responsible for our world)
  • Winter Wonderland (weather, seasons, Fireworks,)
  • Toys (History of toys, Toy Museum, materials, Teddy paintings)
  • Animal Antics (Classifying animals, Continents, moving pictures)
  • In the Garden (Plants) (Jack and the Beanstalk, growing beans, identifying plants and trees, parts of plants, layout of the school playground)
  • In the Garden (Minibeasts) (Classifying animals, textile minibeasts, Katie Morag)
