Year 1 2022 - 2023
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 class teacher. Miss Moss will be supporting us in the mornings and Mrs Sweet will join us in the afternoons.
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.
Our whole school topic for this term has a geography focus and is based on the book 'Lots' by Marc Martin. This is a beatifully illustrated celebration of the world we travel far and wide - from the villages, towns and cities, to the deserts and vast oceans that cover the surface of the planet.
In Year One, we will be exploring the world by identifing and locating the worlds continents and oceans. We will be focusing on the invention of air travel and the amazing animals that live on each continent. Our autumn term topic web below provides an overview of what we will be learning in all areas of the curriculum.
PE is on Wednesday and Friday. Please can children continue to come to school in their PE kit on these days. All kit must be clearly named.
