    I am a College teacher and I am also completing a PhD which looks at possible interdisciplinary curriculum designs for interlinking Maths and coding through musical principles - encouraging a STEAM curriculum.

    I would be grateful if you could complete this short survey that looks at my worksheet design principles for year 1 students.

    Your PhD sounds very interesting and you are very lucky to be doing one.

    However, I feel so disheartened to hear you are planning to use worksheets. What a shame! Please don't design worksheets for year 1 pupils. You have a great opportunity to research and advocate other approaches!

    Well, that's my opinion and response to your worksheet design principles!

    I've not seen your principles, the link has been removed, but like @digoryvenn I'm very saddened to hear you are doing research into worksheets for year 1.

    Worksheets are a naff way to teach at any age...in year 1 they are truly terrible.

    Maths, coding and music are absolutely not suited to worksheets. 5 year olds are also absolutely not suited to worksheets. You'd be hard pressed to find a year 1 teacher in support of worksheets.

    I’m a year 1 teacher and would say the only subject I really need a worksheet for is 3D shapes as my drawing is hopeless.

    You are overthinking Year 1.
