Year 1 termly curriculum overviews

Our curriculum is inclusive, meeting the needs of our diverse community and supporting all pupils to achieve the highest standards and a love of learning.

We have designed our curriculum to balance the statutory requirements of the National requirements within a broad, engaging and exciting curriculum that meets the needs and interests of our pupils.

At the beginning of each half-term, we create a ‘topic web’ outlining what your child will be learning in school.

Topic webs can be download below:
