Year 1 is an exciting place to learn. We aim to make transition from Reception to Year 1 as smooth as possible. We build on the skills learnt in Reception and develop them further moving towards a more structured way of learning. We do this by building on the basics of reading, writing and number work.
We learn through a variety of exciting topics including the seasons and weather, animals, the story books of Julia Donaldson, mechanisms, poetry and all about the paintings of LS Lowry.
Much of our topic work is done through practical, investigative learning so that the children explore their own environment and learn about the world around them. There will be many exciting events happening during the year including dressing up days and trips out of the classroom.
Mrs Ireland, Mrs Ayles, Mrs Satherley, Mrs Dreher, Mrs Downes and Miss Watts are there to ensure that learning is fun and the children make the best progress they can throughout the year.

Phonics is an essential tool in teaching children to read. Here at Radipole we use Little Wandle Letters and Sounds. You can read more about the Little Wandle here.
