Year 1 2020 - 2021

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!


"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.

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 topic is based on the book 'Atlas of Animal Adventures' and year one will be exploring North America. Our autumn term topic web below outlines what we will be learning accross all subjects.

Our roleplay area is set in Brook Falls, Alaska. You can watch the bears and sockeye salmon live at Brook Falls by using the following links:

Unfortunately, the bears are asleep when we are at school so please make use of this at home and let me know what the bears and sockeye salmon get up to!

PE is on Monday and Wednesday. 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 junk modelling materials into school. 

Thank you,

Miss Cork
