Year 1 - mayuri veena
Welcome to Mayuri Veena class! The Mayuri Veena is a traditional musical instrument which originated from Northern India. It is a bowed string instrument with a peacock-shaped resonator called a Mayuri and is played with the neck of the instrument on bow. It’s interesting peacock shape is accompanied by 3 real peacock feathers and a neck with 20 heavy metal frets and 4 strings. The instrument was created between the 4th and 5th centuries and is believed to have been designed to replicate the sound of the peacock.

Year 1 Curriculum Map
Please see below what Year 1 are learning this term. If you click on the documents, they will open into a large version.
The documents are Knowledge Organisers. They contain key facts and information that the children need to have as a basic knowledge and understanding of the topic – giving them the ‘bigger picture’ of what they will be learning at school.
Phonics is one of the key tools for reading and writing. At Holy Trinity, we believe that all our children can become fluent readers and writers. This is why we teach reading through Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised, which is a systematic synthetic phonics programme (SSP). We start teaching phonics in Nursery/Reception and follow the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised progression, which ensures children build on their growing knowledge of the alphabetic code, mastering phonics to read and spell as they move through school.
The resources here will help you support your child with saying their sounds and writing their letters. There are also some useful videos so you can see how they are taught at school and feel confident about supporting their reading at home.
