Welcome To Year 1
Welcome to Year 1! In Year 1 this year your teachers are Mrs Doherty, Mrs Bean, Miss Masters and Ms McNeal (trainee teacher). We are looking forward to working together so that the children have a very exciting and productive year. We are sure the children will enjoy the new challenges and approaches to learning that Year 1 has to offer.
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 Foundation Stage. Learning through play will continue to be included in our day so that children are able to pursue activities that they are excited by.
We kick off the year with a STOMP! CRASH! AND RAGH! Our first topic is ‘Dinosaur Planet’ and we will have to watch out as the dinosaurs are on the prowl. We will become palaeontologists, digging deep and discovering dazzling dinosaur facts as well as finding out about the famous fossil hunter, Mary Anning and the ichthyosaurus. Have a look at some of the fantastic things we have been learning about in Year 1!
