Oldfield Primary School

A community of proud and resilient children who are learning to take their place in the world.

Year 1

Year  1 is a new beginning for the children as it is very different from reception. The Autumn term gives the children time to transition from free-flow to sitting on the tables and working independently. In Year 1, children will begin to embed their phonics skills (previously taught in reception) in their writing and reading. Maths will provide practical opportunities for children to explore numbers and shapes whilst foundation subjects will allow children to show off their creativity!

Please see the termly curriculum maps for more information about learning in Year 1

Miss Yacoub (Y1O)

I recently completed a PGCE at St. Mary’s University and have been enjoying my time greatly in Year 1 at Oldfield Primary. My passion is teaching phonics. Phonics is recommended as a strategy that children are taught to help them read. I enjoy delivering creative and innovative lessons that both engage and stimulate the children.
