Mrs Brierley - Class Teacher
Welcome to the Springwood Junior Academy’s Year 1 website page. In Year 1 we aim to provide the children with a stimulating and nurturing environment where they are happy and engaged in their learning. The classroom is set up for children to learn independently in the areas, as well as alongside adult support at tables, when they complete their core learning tasks linked to the days’ lessons. The children are encouraged to challenge themselves creatively and imaginatively in the practical and artistic areas, as well as working on maths and literacy activities around the classroom too.
In Year 1 all children will sit the Phonics Screening Check in June. This is a national requirement to assess children’s reading skill and is used to inform further teaching and learning as the children progress through school.
