At Park Hill Infant School the National Curriculum is taught through half termly topics which have been decided through consultation with the children. A variety of fantasy, fact, fiction and fun is learnt through our topic based curriculum and the learning is planned for from the children's interests and questions.

Teachers make regular individual assessments for all children throughout the year. Individual progress is tracked rigorously through our in house systems to ensure that all children reach their potential and make good progress. It also allows us to initiate target based intervention if children need some additional support or if they need to be challenged in a particular area of the curriculum.
All children in Year One complete the national phonic screening check in June. Your child's result will be recorded on their end of year report.
If you have any questions regarding the teaching and learning in Year One please pop in to see your child's class teacher and they will be happy to help.
