Help at home

Curriculum Presentation 2019-20

Year 1 is the first year of Key Stage 1 and is full of exciting opportunities and accomplishments for the children. We know as parents that you will want to help your child's learning and development to flourish, but it can sometimes be tricky to know where to start! We hope that the following links may be of use to you:

Oxford Owl:

Here you will find a great overview of the general expectations in Year 1. There are also some very useful links at the bottom of the page to Oxford Owl activities and resources.

You can access online books to read at home too- great for purposeful screen time as they are tablet friendly!
