    Transition to Year One from Reception

    Please also see the guides below for both parents and children to aid with the transition from Reception (part of the Early Years Foundation Stage) to Year One (which is within the National Curriculum). We aim to effect a smooth transition between the two classes.

    Year One is a fun and busy year at school!

    2021 22 Year One planning


    Each half term, I will send a focussed learning plan with any class updates, an overview of learning on one A4 sheet as well as home learning ideas which you may wish to use to support and enhance learning at home. Please share any of this learning with us in school! We love to see the children’s amazing work!

    Autumn One

    At the start of the academic year, parents and carers are invited to our ‘Meet the teacher’ session which welcomes you to your child’s new year group and sets out key information for the coming year. The attached PowerPoint was used as part of the meeting for Emerald Class. Please get in touch if you have any further questions or queries. Many thanks!

    Also, BBC Bitesize has a Primary Catch Up Programme.

    Oaks Academy also has a large range of lesson, online videos to support children’s learning. 

    These learning resources may offer a good starting point when working on Phonics, English and Maths skills at home!
