Year 1

Moving on into Year 1, we continue to value each child as an individual, building upon and consolidating their learning in a fun, exciting way, as we encourage them to achieve to the best of their ability.

Whilst the timetable becomes slightly more structured, the emphasis remains firmly on engaging practical activities that stimulate children’s imaginations and nurture their curiosity.

We firmly believe in enriching children’s language and communication skills ~ children ‘Learn to talk and talk to learn’. The gentle, animated, bubbling sound of children’s laughter and conversation can often be heard as we encourage them to ask questions and discuss their learning as they learn to develop important critical and creative thinking skills. In developing children’s love of literacy, staff continue to hear every child read every day.

The curriculum in Year 1 focuses on the fundamentals of reading, writing and mathematics. Alongside is the continued exploration of Science, Art, RS, PSHCE and Design and Technology, as well as evolving termly topics centred around Historical and Geographical themes. In addition, the children are taught each week by specialist teachers in Music, Computing, PE, Dance, Drama and French.

Our ratio of pupils to adults continues to be low with a fully qualified, experienced class teacher and full-time teaching assistants who work hard to ensure that life at Spratton Hall is challenging, stimulating and, very importantly, fun!
