Welcome to our class page! Here you will find key information about our curriculum.

Here is our daily timetable.

This year, we will be studying the following topics:

Foundation subjects include Art & Design, Design & Technology, Science, History, Geography, ICT and PSHE. These subjects are taught in blocks or 'modules'.

Phonics & Reading


In Year 1, children learn to read using phonics. At Ormsgill, we follow the Little Wandle Letters & Sounds scheme. Each day we learn a new sound.


Reading books are closely matched to phonics learning. Children should read daily to ensure they keep up-to-date and make maximum progress.


Books must be read three times before they are changed by a member of staff.
