In Year 1 the core subjects of Maths and English at Gatehouse School become more defined, enhanced and fostered. There is still a strong emphasis on topic based themes, and other subjects from the wider curriculum are introduced through Science, History and Geography. Children continue to climb the reading scheme, but are also introduced to project books to widen and develop their reading interest and experience.

Timed homework is set daily, and parents are encouraged to get involved with their child’s homework to support and develop their learning.
