What happens in Year 1 at IPS?

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 learning times.

Whilst playful learning time is gradually reduced, the children still engage in lots of hand-on, practical 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 short term plan for each term, so that you can see what learning opportunities are planned.
