We enjoy learning these topics in a cross-curricular way using visits and special days to enhance our learning. You might find us exploring the school grounds for natural objects, practising our letter sounds, making healthy food, creating sculptures or building machines out of Lego. Find out more about the curriculum below. Be sure to keep up to date with what’s happening by following us on Twitter @Y1CRA Optional homework and spelling lists are sent home via ParentMail every half term. We always aim to provide a caring and supportive environment that encourages all children to achieve. We are very much looking forward to an enjoyable year! Mrs Taylor and Miss Murray Our broad, balanced and ambitious curriculum has been extremely carefully created and sequenced as a result of whole school curriculum planning meetings. A general overview, long term plan, is available for your perusal below. This long term planning grid will tell you what topics are being covered in each of the subject areas throughout the year. Should you wish to gain a deeper insight into what these topics contain, information is available on all our subject pages that will inform you further about what skills and knowledge they will gather as they proceed. More detailed knowledge is available on our subject pages as we feel this shows you how knowledge is expanded upon as the children move through school and how skills are progressed from one phase to another.
