Timetable and a normal day in our class

Here is a timetable of a typical week in Seacole class. Please note that occasionally this will be different. CP is continuous provision and this mean time for the children to learn through play.


In Year 1, the children have lots of opportunities to learn through play. We have an outdoor area with continuous provision activities that all the children are able to access throughout the day. CP is continuous provision and this mean time for the children to learn through play.

We follow God Matters in Religious Education (the Portsmouth Diocese scheme of learning). The children learn two hours of RE per week in KS1 and are involved in Collective Worship.


Things that help us learn

We use Mathletics to support children’s home learning and we will be continuing to use Google Classroom as our online learning platform in Key Stage 1.


We follow the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised phonics programme. We teach phonics daily and each child will take part in reading practise sessions three times a week.


A reading practise book (Collins Big Cat for Little Wandle) reading book will sent home on a weekly basis which is pitched at your child’s current phonic ability and at a level they can decode and comprehend at a 95% accuracy. As well as this, each child will select a reading for pleasure book from the library.


Weekly spellings are sent home to consolidate the phonetic sounds the children have been learning that week.  



We will keep you updated with trips and visits!
