I just thought I’d write a quick list of all the things you may use in a Year 1 classroom to start you off. You could have themes for different areas or just one theme running in your classroom, there are so many different ways to do it. I have linked to some of my printable resources on H+V. I would include actual resources but this guide is mainly for printables.

Printable resources for the tables/resources for children to have access to:


Start with display lettering and pop them up to give the different zones.


Challenge Areas:



Expressive arts area:

PE area:

This is only a small list to get started, throughout the year you can change and add the printables when needed.
