Welcome to Rowan Class (Year 1). During this year we are building on the foundations of previous knowledge and experiences and learning lots of new things. In English and phonics we follow the Read Write Inc program. Following assessment, children are taught in ability groups. They are assessed regularly to check on progress so that they can move on to the next group or if they are struggling, receive extra help. We follow the White Rose mastery approach to maths and every child in our class is a super mathematician!
Even though we have lots of hard work to do we also have a great deal of fun. We enjoy using the outdoors and under normal circumstances, going on educational visits to support our learning. Throughout the year we have specialist teachers for music and many different sports activities.
It is very important to us that our children have a stimulating, safe learning environment where children feel happy and secure to learn and play. Our school Christian values help us to ensure that we are a kind and caring class who take care of each other. This enables our children to have every opportunity to Learn, Achieve and Shine in YR1.
