Year 1

Welcome to Year 1

During Year 1, the children will enjoy a range of texts in English which are brought to life through drama, SPaG and writing sessions. They will continue to pronounce and write sounds through 'Phonics Steps' and have a ‘Learning to Read’ book matched to the individual sounds they have learnt at home and in school – as well as a book to instill a love of reading from the school library. The children will become more skilled in all aspects of maths and will develop their understanding of numbers to 100 as well as their knowledge of shape, space and measure. In science our topics are: ‘Animals Including Humans’, ‘Materials’ and ‘Plants’.

In history, we study ‘The History of Our School’, ‘The History of Toys’ and ‘The Seaside’. In geography we study: ‘The Countries of the UK’, Human and Physical Features’ and ‘Routes and Maps’. In Year 1, we use a range of digital resources to teach the children how to code such using the Beebots. In addition, the children will gain experience of using a range of programmes such as: Microsoft Word and PowerPoint as well as Google Safe Search to further develop and enhance their computing skills.

One of the highlight’s of the year is our Christmas Nativity. In addition, the children will all perform a class assembly for you to enjoy. We will end our year with a Summer Fun Day and all of our memories throughout our time in Year 1 at Great Bookham School will be captured in our Yearbook.

Please find below the presentation shared with parents at the information meeting.

We would like to thank you profusely for visiting our page and please do not hesitate to contact me with any queries throughout the year.
