What happens in Year 1 at UCPS?

In Year 1 we support the children through the transition from The Foundation Stage to Key Stage 1. We gradually increase the children’s exposure to more structured, whole class learning and longer lesson times. Whilst ‘playful learning time’  is gradually reduced, the children still engage in lots of practical, hands on activities, using a range of resources to develop different concepts, for example using objects to support addition and subtraction in Mathematics. We will publish the curriculum map each term so that you can see what learning opportunities are planned.

Our School Blog

We keep a blog to keep our parents and children updated of what has happened and what’s going to happen throughout the year.
