Welcome To Year 1
A very big welcome from the Year 1 team.
We hope you have had a lovely time over the summer and are ready to start your child’s journey in Year 1! In Year 1 this year your teachers are Mrs Doherty, Mrs Bean and Miss Young. We are looking forward to working together so that the children have a very exciting and productive year. I am 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 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.
We are kicking off the year with a STOMP! CRASH! AND RAGH! Our first topic is ‘Dinosaur Planet’ and watch out everyone as the dinosaurs are on the prowl. We will become palaeontologists to dig deep and discover dazzling dinosaur facts as well as finding out about the famous fossil hunter, Mary Anning and the ichthyosaurus.
We can’t wait to start this exciting adventure together.
