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
We have lots of opportunities scheduled into our week to support our English learning in Year 1:
- English lessons
- Handwriting lessons
- Guided reading
- Phonics lessons
- Basic skills lessons
We believe that our lessons should be fun, engaging and 'hands on' where possible to ensure that our children develop a positive relationship with reading and writing.
We focus on a new text approximately every 2-3 weeks (dependent on children's interest).
Please see our curriculum overview on the main page to have a look at the different stories we will be reading and learning about over the course of the year.
Please see our Phonics page for support and guidance on how to support your child's early reading and writing.
