Shadsworth Infant SchoolLearning, Sharing and Caring


Welcome toShadsworth Infant SchoolLearning, Sharing and Caring

Year 1

In Year 1 we have a varied and exciting curriculum where we teach key skills in English and Mathematics alongside the foundation subjects using a creative, topic based approach to learning.

We use Jolly Phonics as a tool to support our teaching of Letters and Sounds Phonics and also use the Letter Join scheme for Handwriting.

The children also participate in comprehension activities throughout daily guided reading sessions and we listen to them read their home reading book and try and change this at least once or twice a week.


We encourage children to bring interesting objects in to class or work they have done at home to show to the rest of the class. We also have regular circle time activities and lots of time to talk and share our experiences and news with each other.
