How We Learn:
As children transition from Early Years into Key Stage One their learning adventure continues. We continue to build upon the characteristics of effective learning and the children’s eagerness to be independent in their own learning.
At the start of each topic teachers plan key activities which meet National Curriculum objectives, but will also allow opportunities to follow the children’s interests and for collaborative work between children.
Children’s days are a carefully planned blend of teacher led sessions, small group work, independent practice tasks and time for children to demonstrate and deepen their learning by choosing how to access a range of opportunities both inside and outside.
Our Year One classrooms are dynamic, well resourced learning spaces. They share a large outside area which children are able to access throughout the day.
Children have opportunities to; experiment with scientific concepts, engage with computing, make artwork, experience the natural world, design and create structures and models, explore scenarios through role play and learn how to cook simple recipes. Resources to support and extend the children’s reading, writing and mathematical concepts are always available to use.
Children are encouraged to have a healthy snack e.g. fruit, vegetables, toast or breadsticks when they are hungry and they prepare and serve this themselves.
