Last Booking Date: 19th September 2018

Over recent years, the focus has been on EYFS, Y2 and Y6, however this is now changing to ensuring Y1 builds on learning from EYFS and preparing children ready for Y2 and onwards. This Network will focus on different aspects of Y1 at each meeting:

Transition from EYFS and planning provision

This session will focus on supporting children to build on the foundations of learning that they developed in the EYFS. We will explore how to plan effective and engaging provision and create communication friendly spaces within our settings.

Subject knowledge and planning units of work

This session will focus on developing our subject knowledge of the Y1 content of the National Curriculum. We will explore how to develop exciting planning units & will share good practice and teaching ideas.

Phonics and the phonics screening check

This session will focus on phonics provision within our settings and the requirements of the Y1 screening check. We will become familiar with the structure and content of the test and will discuss our roles and responsibilities with regard to the administration of the check.

Assessment and moderation of writing

This session will focus on the assessment of writing and will be an opportunity for colleagues to bring in their children's work and to engage in professional dialogue, sharing their judgements and discussing next steps.

Justine is the Early Years and Y1 specialist in SGCC and also works in a similar capacity in North Somerset LA to Claire Ridsdale, who recommends her as the most appropriate expert to lead the Y1 Network!
