We’re sorry that this course is now full.  We have added a further date in the summer term due to popular demand. Further details can be found here.


Are you happy with your Year 1 Provision? Are you looking to increase challenge, without making your environment too formal?


At Bowker Vale, we have really bridged the gap between continuous provision at EYFS and the end of Key Stage expectations at Year 2 with our Year 1 way of working.

The environment promotes independence by providing children with the opportunity to take responsibility for their own learning through structured challenges. This encourages problem solving skills as well as cross curricular links. Our provision enables children to independently apply skills taught in previous lessons, which help to assess whether learning has been embedded. The children have opportunities to show mastery and depth in all areas through open ended activities and differentiated targets.

Outcomes and independence in Year 1 have significantly improved since we changed our way of working.  Come and hear about our ethos and visit the classrooms to observe this way of working.
