We run Year 1 as a Continuous Provision based setting which supports the children's transition from EYFS. Continuous Provision is where the children are able to engage in independent, play-based activities which are carefully planned out by the teachers to scaffold, extend or review the children's learning. We have a number of short carpet sessions across the day where children are taught maths, English and topic as well as a 45 minute Read Write Inc session in the mornings. During Continuous Provision, the children will also work in small targeted groups with adults to complete focus tasks.
Gwithian is a busy, bustling classroom, full of conversation, interaction and engagement. This might be when using numicon and paint to print number bonds, it could be role playing stories we have learnt or using lego to build the tallest tower or design a new building.
PE is on a Tuesday afternoon: Children to come to school dressed in PE kit and trainers until further notice.
Reading books will be changed on Mondays and books will be linked to their current Read, Write, Inc group.
In Year 1 we have a big focus on reading in preparation for the phonics screening check in June.
We ask that you listen to your child read 5 times per week to support with blending and comprehension. Please speak to us if you have any questions. Thank You
See below for a copy of a previous Phonics Screening Check. We will be regularly working on these with the children so that they are familiar with them before the test takes place in June.
