Year 1 is a busy but rewarding year! This stage in your child’s primary school journey marks your child’s transition from the continuous provision environment of reception, where children learn mostly through play, to a more academic environment. Children will be expected to sustain concentration for longer periods of time and to take part in formal lessons.

Children in year 1 will be expected to complete a phonics assessment this year. This usually takes place towards the beginning of June and is done on a 1-to-1 basis with the class teacher. More information will be given about this during our annual phonics meeting for parents.
Year 1 children will also complete optional assessments – as children in years 2 – 5 do – in reading, writing and maths. Ongoing assessments take place throughout the year, with each year group having an informal assessment week at the end of each term to check progress.
