 YEAR ONE CURRICULUM this term....

Theme-Led Curriculum

Time Travellers: Where will the TARDIS take us?

 Year One will be making an exciting journey through time when they consider, ‘Where will the TARDIS take us?’. Their focus will be on changes and significant events within living memory, so it will be a great opportunity for family members to share their own memories with the children.  Perhaps some of you have toys from your childhood that you would like to share with your child at home? Do you know anyone who remembers the moon landing or Queen Elizabeth’s Coronation? We are sure that family members will enjoy sharing their own memories of those events with your child.


Are tigers like humans?

In science, our children will be thinking about ‘Are tigers like humans?’ which will give them opportunities to identify common and more unusual animals and compare their needs to their own.

Calling all Volunteers!

Last year the children enjoyed and greatly benefited from numerous parent volunteers who supported our curriculum themes, reading and invaluable school trips. This is a real strength of our school, and one which we are very keen to continue!  However, due to Covid 19 restrictions we are unable to welcome any visitors into school at the moment. 

Phonics Screening Check

All children in Year 1 are required to complete a phonics screening check. It is not a formal test and your child will probably not even realise that it is one. We aim to keep it short and fun and usually find that the children enjoy spending time playing the word ‘games’ with their teacher. Attached is an information sheet about how and when the check will be administered. For further information, please click here

Information about how we complete the check at Burley Oaks can be found here.
