Y1 Long Term Plan

Our long term plan ensures coverage of each subject area across the curriculum and is monitored by each subject leader alongside a range of other monitoring tasks that ensure coverage and progression. Teachers may change the order of some topics where there is justification to do so, but will still ensure coverage of all topics across all subject areas.

At St Joseph’s, we are incredibly grateful for the invaluable support that our parents and carers provide for our pupils. We know how well our families have been able to adapt to home learning so now that we can welcome all of our pupils back to school, we wanted to provide opportunities for our pupils to continue their learning at home, if they choose to. The homework given will prepare and support your child’s learning across the curriculum each half term. The homework tasks below are optional. If you would also like to read our homework policy, please follow the link below.
