The transition from Early Years to Key Stage One is a smooth and well organised process, so when children begin Year 1 their teachers know exactly how to challenge and develop their learning. Reading, Writing and Mathematics form the main focus of the curriculum and we have daily focussed lessons.
Our maths always starts with a practical activity, moving onto pictorial and then finally recording in individual maths books. The outdoor areas of year one are particularly utilised for numeracy concepts. There is a challenge for every day, either an investigation or word problem in a real life context.
