Welcome to the Year 1 area. At Kilmorie, we believe that play continues to be the best way to learn right into Year 1. However, although children’s interests contribute to daily practices, the bulk of the learning is planned around topics to cover the increasingly broad curriculum requirements.
During the Autumn term, the sequence of the day is very similar to that experienced in Reception, with only a little more time given to timetabled activities such as French and assemblies. During the Spring term, the amount of time spent learning through free-flow activities both inside and out begins to be slowly reduced and a little more whole class teaching and follow up is introduced. In the final Summer term, free-flow opportunities for learning continue in a reduced way but there is more whole class teaching and follow up planned, which is adapted to meet the needs of different groups of children.
