Year 1

Welcome to Year 1


Welcome to Year 1's year group page. This is the page for Class 3 and 4. You will be able to find out about our learning experiences in school each week and see photos of us having fun. We have an exciting year ahead, with trips out, workshops and visitors already planned. We look forward to getting to know and working together with all Year 1 parents, to ensure the children have a fulfilling year. 

Jungle animals and sorting

Week beginning 9.9.19


This week  the children have had their first taste of the year 1  curriculum. They have enjoyed sorting animals by pattern, number of legs, colour and size.  They have followed this up  by choosing an jungle animal pattern to draw and will later make this into an animal face. Some of the art work has been outstanding! The children have felt very grown-up as they have been introduced to a new style of handwriting, designed to make joining easier later on. More about this at the Curriculum Evening.....

First Week Back

Week beginning 3.9.19


The children in year 1 have all settled well into the school routine. They are already asking questions about and looking forward to the school trip later in the month.  The topic this term is about animals and the children will be introduced to vocabulary such as carnivore, herbivore and omnivore and they will learn how to sort animals into groups such as reptiles, birds, mammals, amphibians and insects. Thanks to all the adults who have helped support the children as they have come into to school.  We are all looking forward to a fabulous year!
