Year One

In Year one, the children transition from Early Years into a more structured curriculum. 

We explore a wide range of subjects from getting to know more about Ourselves and our bodies, the wonderful world of Toys and the delicious delights of Food.

The children are read with in school and also encouraged to read at home by using our online reading scheme, Bug Club. We also have the opportunity to visit both our onsite library and Brixton library to select from an extensive range of high quality texts.  

There is a big focus on phonics in Year 1 and we have daily phonics lessons, we also incorporate phonics into all areas of their learning and provide small group interventions for those children that need additional help.

In Year one we are becoming Maths Masters, by learning a range of different skills to develop the children’s fluency (showing what we already know), reasoning (explain their methods) and problem solving (apply methods taught).

Year One also have the chance to attend a variety of after school clubs which include Gardening Club, Bug Club, Library Club, infant choir and a number of different sports clubs. 

At Jubilee we also have the opportunity for the children to begin to play an instrument. The London Music Masters provide the children with violins, which they use in lessons three times a week. At the end of each term, the children get to showcase their talents to an audience and play for their parents and carers. 

In year one at Jubilee, the children also get the opportunity to go on a range of exciting trips across the year linked to their curriculum topics . Some of the places that we are lucky to visit are the Science Museum, The Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green and Pizza Express!

We encourage parents and carers to share their skills with the children and we are always looking for visitors to our classroom to help support and enhance the children’s learning.
