Year 1 is an important transitional year from Reception into more formal learning.
We allow for this transition by introducing more formal and specific tasks in the different areas of provision that make up our classroom. These areas can be all or some of the following: roleplay area, writing area, maths area, creative/making area, construction area, an activity on our classroom computers, water area and a science lab and tinker table.
As well as access to these classroom areas we have longer carpet time sessions and longer maths and English activity times where children learn to work independently as well as within groups with adult help.
In our morning sessions we work in groups which are best suited to our abilities to enable all children to have the best quality learning in relation to their development and in the afternoon when we do Topic work (which includes Science, History, Geography, ICT, RE and music) we have mixed ability groups.
We try to make learning as much fun and as hands-on as possible; a happy environment means happy, receptive learners.
