Year 1 Curriculum

Reading in Year 1
Reading plays an important part in developing children’s imagination and interests. All children will have an individual or group read weekly and will change their levelled reading book and while this is happening, the children will engage in paired reading within the class. There is a new focus author every half-term and these stories will be shared (along with others) during the daily story time in class. Each class has a Reading Bear and a child is chosen every week to take the bear home and take photos and share reading with. Each class has a weekly library session and they also do paired reading with Year 4 every Friday afternoon. Whole class reading also takes place during lessons such as phonics and cracking comprehension. As an additional incentive, the children are awarded a point for every whole book they read and these points accumulate and turn into prizes.
