Welcome to Year 1; we have an exciting year of learning with great experiences and events planned for the children. We are excited to help them achieve their potential during their time with us.


Our main topic themes for the year:


Who am I? How are things built?


What is our world like? How do plants grow?


How have plants changed? What makes animals unique?

To support our understanding of our topics we have planned exciting visits which will enrich our learning and give the children new and exciting experiences.

In Year 1 children are encouraged to read every day for adults and to record this in their reading diaries.

All children have access to a wide variety of books. Parents can support their children's learning through sharing stories and the pleasure of reading, discussing topics we are learning in class and giving the children the opportunity to apply learning in a range of scenarios or real life situations.
