Year 1

Welcome to Year 1 where we are continuing our exciting journey together and building upon all that we have learnt in Reception.

Every effort is made, especially in the first term, to provide a smooth transition from Reception class. We use lots of practical activities within our lessons and gradually progress to becoming more independent so that we can work through the Year 1 curriculum.

Our classroom is bright and colourful with lots of displayed linked to our learning. We usually have Maths, Literacy, RE and Guided Reading in the morning and in the afternoons we usually cover Phonics, PE ICT, Art and Design Technology. As you can see our days are very busy and we work very hard.

In Year 1 we know that ‘Jesus Loves Me’ and always try to follow his example by living like Jesus wants us to live. We know that it is very important to always try our best by working hard and being kind to others.
