Welcome to Year 1

Year 1 is an exciting and rewarding time as the children make the transition from Foundation Stage into Year 1. Our primary aim is to develop a safe and happy environment where your children will thrive. We carefully choose topics that will hopefully inspire and engage your children both at home and school – see our curriculum newsletters below. This year’s topics are:

Term 1: Marvellous Me

Term 2: Superheroes

Term 3: Enchanted Woodland

Term 4: What is the day in the life of a knight like?

Term 5: What is it like to live in another country?

Term 6: Growing & looking after our world

We love parents and families to get involved in school life and plan different activities and events to showcase our lovely learning or help you support your child with learning at home. For example, ‘Stay, Show & Have a Go’ events, weekly ‘Family Storytime’, ‘Meet the teacher’ meetings as well as parents evenings. Have a look at our termly newsletters to see what’s coming up.

We have been making some exciting changes to our Year 1 classrooms. The children are learning through play, with lots of challenges in the continuous provision and a balance of adult led learning too. We have had positive feedback from the children about the changes - "I like going into role play the best!" and "I like it this way better, there's new things, we enjoy it!" and "I like it better when I explore, coz then I can make things". Parents have also told us that their children are coming home and talking more about their learning than they did before!

Thank you to all of the parents who attended our information evening about the changes. Please have a look at the documents we talked about.
