Year 1 2019 - 2020

Miss Cork

Welcome to Year 1!


"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are hidden in the most unlikely places." - Roald Dahl


Miss Cork is the Year 1 teacher. The wonderful Miss Porter is the teaching assistant working alongside Miss Cork. Mr Fogg, an Associate Teacher from the Universtiy of Chester, will also be joining us for the autumn term. 

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. 

Our whole school autumn term topic is 'Atlas of Adventures' and Year One will be sailing along the Zambezi River. We will be basing most of our learning around the stories 'A River' by Marc Martin and  'Cross Crocodile' by Mwenye Hadithi. You can download our topic web below which outlines what we will be learning accross all subjects.

PE is on Wednesday and Thursday. Please can ALL items of kit be clearly labelled. We also ask that PE kits are in school throughout the week as we aspire to be as active as we can and some weeks these days may differ. 

Please continue to bring boxes, tubes, bottles, yoghurt pots etc into school for junk modelling.

Thank you,

Miss Cork
