Welcome to our English page! 

In English, we will be learning lots of skills in Year 1. 

The National Curriculum splits English into three main categories:

  • Spoken Language 
  • Reading 
  • Writing 

We have lots of opportunities scheduled into our week to support our English learning in Year 1:

  • Read Write Inc Session (1 hour daily) 
  • Read Write Inc VCR Time (10 minutes daily- children watch a speed sound lesson using our online portal which teaches to their identified sound gaps)
  •  Favourite Five Story Time (15 minutes daily- children choose 5 texts every half term they enjoy and we read these over the half term to ensure children have a range of books they know well and develop a love for reading)
  •  Basic Skills (15 minutes daily- this alternates between English and Maths and includes skills such as reading and writing days of the week, months of the year, letter formation, basic punctuation etc).

Please see our Phonics page for support and guidance on how to support your child’s early reading and writing.
