Primary Year 1 Syllabus 1. Overview: This syllabus sets out the themes, topics, grammar and vocabulary pupils will learn in Primary Year 1. It explains how the Year 1 content is organised, the place of thinking skills in Year 1, and the role of phonics in helping pupils to learn to read. It also sets out text types suitable for pupils in Year 1. Themes and Topics: The English Language Curriculum for Malaysian Primary Schools emphasises the importance of sustaining the use of the English language within and beyond the classroom.
Details of the themes and lessons can be found within the Scheme of Work document. Grammar: Pupils are exposed to grammar all the time as they learn English, but they are not expected to analyse grammar explicitly in detail in Year 1. The aim of learning English in Years 1 and 2 is very much to provide pupils with positive and successful experiences with English, so that the motivation to learn comes from meaning and enjoyment rather than a specific focus on grammar. This focus on meaning and enjoyment helps children to build positive attitudes to and confidence with learning English.
Pupils can carry these positive attitudes and motivation into Year 3, when they begin to focus more explicitly on grammar. Vocabulary: The Year 1 syllabus indicates vocabulary in 3 ways: by topic, by category and alphabetically. The words in the Year 1 wordlist are found in the textbook units and in further lessons described within the Scheme of Work. Many words are introduced in the textbook and are recycled in the non-textbook-based lessons.
Working towards A1. Both the textbook-based and non-textbook-based lessons do this through helping pupils to think about the content and values shown in stories, and through helping them to apply knowledge linked to other subjects in the curriculum. Many tasks involve thinking skills. The Colours section in Unit 1 of the textbook, for example, encourages pupils to make hypotheses and requires them to interpret visual information. A number of tasks in the non- textbook-based lessons involve pupils in designing tasks for other pupils.
Designing these tasks encourages pupils to analyse and evaluate what they already know and to use their imagination. The Language Arts strand of the syllabus gives pupils opportunities to solve problems and to think creatively. A good example here is Lesson 10, in which pupils work together to use their bodies to represent numbers.
Phonics: Some Year 1 pupils will already be able to read, and others will be starting or still learning to read. Pupils who are starting or still learning to read will need help with identifying and recognising letter sounds on the page, matching these with the appropriate letters, and blending sounds and letters in order to build words.
Phonics is a systematic approach to helping these pupils to learn to read through matching corresponding sounds and letters. A table of common sound and letter correspondences is below to help you with your phonics teaching. Learning to read involves both word recognition and language comprehension. Phonics is about word recognition, and this is a first step in helping pupils to be able to concentrate on understanding words.
The role of meaning is therefore vital in helping pupils to learn to read. This is why playful and enjoyable phonics activities which focus on meaning as well as on 3 Primary Year 1 Syllabus. The Year 2 syllabus includes a phonics table of further sound-letter correspondences. There are also supplementary activities in reading and writing lessons in the Scheme of Work.
