England Primary English Key Stage 1 Year 1 National Curriculum

Strands and substrands of the curriculum are -

  • Spoken language
  • Reading – word reading
  • Reading – comprehension
  • Writing – transcription
  • Writing – composition
  • Writing – vocabulary, grammar and punctuation

During year 1, teachers should build on work from the Early Years Foundation Stage, making sure that pupils can sound and blend unfamiliar printed words quickly and accurately using the phonic knowledge and skills that they have already learnt. Teachers should also ensure that pupils continue to learn new grapheme-phoneme correspondences (GPCs) and revise and consolidate those learnt earlier. The understanding that the letter(s) on the page represent the sounds in spoken words should underpin pupils’ reading and spelling of all words.
