Year 1 Curriculum Map

Learning expectations of your child:



Your child's learning has been mapped on a Year 1 Framework document. The document shows the key objectives that will be covered and which your child should have mastered to be Age Appropriate in each subject by the end of the academic year.

Year 1 Framework


End Points

The Key objectives for each subject area which we would be supporting all children to have mastered are mapped out on a Year 1 End Points document.  These are the key objectives that we feel a child needs to have mastered to move onto the next years curriculum for each subject.

Year 1 End Points

End of Year Learning Outcomes:

The following guide gives examples of learning that we would typically expect a child in Year 1 to demonstrate if they are achieving at an age appropriate level by the end of the year. 

We hope that you will find the guide useful and that it will enable you to understand some of the learning that a child who is working at an age appropriate level may be able to complete.

Our class names this year are...

Each of our classes is named after a world famous STEM hero.  We are learning about this hero throughout the year.  We had the portraits below commissioned (see artist website here) and you will find these, along with our learning about our hero, in our Rainbow Room.  Please ask us about our hero and why they are so special.

Florence Nightingale


 "Growing up in an upper-class family, it was expected that Florence would find a husband and live a life of luxury—but that kind of life wasn’t for her. Her calling was caring for the sick and the poor, so she followed her passion with her whole heart and trained to be a nurse. When war broke out, Florence traveled to nurse wounded soldiers but found that the hospitals were so dirty that they were making people ill! This experience inspired her to lead a healthcare revolution, and she became the mother of modern nursing, introducing care practices still followed today."

Little People, Big Dreams by Maria Isabel Sánchez Vegara





Mary Seacole

"Most of what we know about Mary Seacole comes from a book she published in 1857 about her life. She called it The Wonderful Adventures of Mrs. Seacole in Many Lands – and it proved a popular read!

But following her death, her name was almost completely forgotten for around 100 years. It wasn’t until the 1970s, in fact, that people started to read about the amazing Mary Seacole and wanted to know more about her.

As a mixed-race woman living in the 19th century, what Mary Seacole achieved in her lifetime was truly remarkable. She broke social rules and prejudices to travel the world, run businesses and help those in need – even in the most dangerous places.

Best known for her work as a nurse in the Crimean War, Mary Seacole will forever be remembered as an incredible woman and inspiring role model."
