Year 1 is taught by Miss Hollingshead and is supported by Mrs Hunt. The year 1 classroom is bright and airy and the children have access to an outside play area. The children in Year 1 are making the important transition from the Early Year Foundation Stage (EYFS) to Key Stage 1 and are becoming increasingly independent in all aspects of their learning. Since the government introduced the statutory assessment of phonics at the end of year 1 the preparation for this assessment has become a significant part of the year 1 curriculum. The children are well prepared using a range of colourful and enjoyable activities; although it is a formal test we ensure that the children are relaxed and happy believing the test is just another classroom game.
