Year 1 2021 - 2022

Miss Cork

At the heart of everything is a personalised approach to each unique individual as part of our Christian Community. The strong family ethos ensures that all children and staff feel valued, respected and grow in self-confidence. Enthusiastic and caring staff with high expectations, demonstrate care of the whole child. Through God’s guidance we encourage each and every child to 'let their light shine.'

Welcome to Year 1

Miss Cork is the Year 1 teacher and Miss Porter is the teaching assistant.

Our aim is to ensure that the children experience a smooth transition from the Foundation Stage to Key Stage One. The Year 1 curriculum builds upon and extends the experiences that children have had in Reception. Learning through play will continue to be an important part of the school day, and the children will gradually be eased into more formal learning as the year goes on so that they remain motivated, enthused and eager learners.

As a rights respecting school, one of the first activities completed in September is our class charter. The children choose a number of articles which they feel must be met at school. It is then discussed how the adults (duty bearers) and the pupils (rights holders) in school ensure these rights are met. Have a look at our class charter below!


Our whole school topic for this term has a STEM (Science, technology, engineering and mathematics) focus. In Year One, we will be looking a materials and plants. Download the curriculum map for more information. Our curriculum maps are working documents which are adapted and added to as the childrens interests, ideas and questions develop. 

PE is on Monday and Wednesday. Please can children continue to come to school in their PE kit on these days. All kit must be clearly named. 

Thank you,

Miss Cork
