 Learning Challenge Curriculum

                                              Where will the TARDIS take us?

 Year One will be making an exciting journey through time when they consider, ‘Where will the TARDIS take us?’. Our focus will be on changes and significant events within living memory, so it will be a great opportunity for family members to share their own memories with the children.  Perhaps some of you have toys from your childhood that you like to share? Do you know anyone who remembers the moon landing or Queen Elizabeth’s Coronation?


Science                     Why are humans not like tigers?


In science our children will be thinking ‘Why are humans not like tigers?’ which will give them opportunities to identify common and more unusual animals and compare their needs to their own.

Calling all volunteers!

Last year the children enjoyed and greatly benefitted from numerous parent volunteers who supported our curriculum themes, reading and invaluable school trips. This is a real strength of our school, and one which we are very keen to continue!  Please do get in touch if you think you can help in any way.


Phonics Screening Check

All children in Year 1 are required to complete a phonics screening check. It is not a formal test and your child will probably not even realise that it is one. We aim to keep it short and fun and usually find that the children enjoy spending time playing the word ‘games’ with their teacher. Attached is an information sheet about how and when the check will be administered. For further information, please click here

Information about how we complete the check at Burley Oaks can be found here.
