Combs Ford Primary School

Welcome to Combs Ford Primary School

Year 1 Curriculum

In Year One we always start the year by building on the skills the children have learnt whilst in Reception. We endeavour to make the children’s transition from the Foundation Stage into KS1 as smooth, fun and educationally stimulating as possible.

We teach our lessons through engaging and child friendly topics where the children develop their knowledge, understanding and skills in a range of ways to suit all learning styles. The subjects we teach through topics are; Science, History, Geography, Art, Design Technology and Computing.

Our English lessons link to our topics and through these lessons we develop the children’s reading, writing, speaking and listening skills, through both guided and independent activities.

We operate a 2 year rolling programme of topics which are shared with Year 2, so your child will cover all of the topics shown below, but which topics they cover in each year group will depend upon where in the cycle we are:

Our topics (shared with Year 2) are…
