The English text planner below shows the writing skills and outcomes that children in Year 1 will learn in each half-term along with the books that teachers use to support the learning. We ask that parents do not buy the books until after the half-term they are studied as reading ahead may interfere with the learning journey.

Click on the progression documents to find the knowledge and skills children in Year 1 are learning.

You will also find the statutory word list that all children should learn to read and spell in Year 1: known as common exception words as they are not easily decodable.
