Year 1

Year 1 at CAMBRAI 

Key Stage 1 at Cambrai builds seamlessly from our Early Years curriculum - to offer a broad and rich introduction to specific subject learning, through the excitement of a range of interesting topics!

Year 1 is taught by Mr. Marshall, who is supported by Ms Agnew. Year 1 is a very exciting place to be! 


The Year 1 'Long Term Plans' are available to view below. These plans detail which topics children will cover, as well as which subjects are taught and when - as well as how the legal 'National Curriculum' has been appropriately interwoven in to our curriculum.

Learning to read, by learning to decode, then comprehend is the bedrock of learning at our school - and particularly in Year 1 - as a at the end of this year, the children sit their first government 'test' - 'The Phonic Screening Check'. We make no apology for reading taking pride of place in our Key Stage 1 curriculum. To teach phonics, we use the 'Letters and Sounds - Revised' systematic phonics scheme. More information about how we teach reading across our school, including phonics, can be found on our 'Reading at Cambrai' webpage, HERE. 

Below, are the individual unit overviews for Year 1 for parents and carers. These detail what children will be learning in each unit - and how you can help at home! Each term these are updated in advance to reflect any changes which have made to our curriculum. 

If you have any questions about the curriculum in Year 1, please get in touch with Mr. Marshall, who will be happy to talk about all of the exciting things planned!
