In Year One we continue to build upon the structured approach introduced at the end of Reception. We use elements of the Early Years Curriculum as well as the National Curriculum to develop the children's progressive learning. Throughout the year we will be encouraging the children to become more independent in their learning.
Following on from Reception, we are keen to keep you heavily involved in your child’s learning throughout Year One. For this reason we will use the following methods to ensure effective communication.
|Termly Newsletters||As well as school newsletters, you will also receive a bulletin all about Year 1. This will come to you via your child’s book bag.|
|A weekly Dear Parents letter||This will give you reminders and information about the week ahead as well as ways to support your child at home. You will find this in our Treehouse window close to the Year 1 classrooms as well as on our website.|
|Terrific Tree Toppers||We will continue to celebrate new achievements with you by displaying Terrific Tree Toppers on our board. Please share with us your news for example; if your child put their jumper on for the first time or helped to make biscuits at home etc. jot it down on a topper!|
|Our website pages||Here you will find copies of our Newsletters, Dear Parents, Termly Updates as well as photo galleries.|
