Primary School

Year 1

Welcome to Avon 1 and Mere 1

The curriculum theme for Year 1 is 'Relationships'. The theme is explored in a variety of ways across the year, covering relationships between people, our relationships with the natural world, how we try to organised aspects of our world, whilst some of it remains wild and even unknown to us.  The school's values are incorporated into our exploration.

Whilst some curriculum content is taught discretely, wherever possible the Year 1 curriculum is organised into cross-curricular topics to exploit the connections between subjects:

- Think Big

- Into the Woods

- From Rags to Riches

- From the City to the Seaside

We ensure coverage of the National Curriculum, as outlined in our long term plan.  How we do that is detailed in our medium term plans.
