Year 1

The intake for Year 1 is 60 children. 

Children are taught by:
Mr Smith in 1JS

Mrs Smith and Mrs Rock in 1SR

The teachers are supported by:
Mrs Cozens
Miss Patel 

Mrs Atkinson (Team Leader)

Children are taught phonics using the Letters and Sounds scheme and recap on phases 2 and 3 (see Reception) in the first term, as well as applying these sounds in words as part of phase 4. After this, Year 1 move onto phases 5 and 6 which are taught through the Floppy Phonics scheme which covers all of the same sounds as the letters and Sounds programme as well as some additional blends.

Children who do not pass the phonics check in Year 1 receive a phonics intervention in Year 2 to give them the best possible chance in passing their next check.
