Welcome to the Year 1 Class Page

Welcome to Year 1 at St John the Baptist Catholic Primary School.


Meet the Year One team:

Miss James: Class Teacher & Key Stage One Leader

Mrs Weeks: Support Assistant 


Year 1 is the first year of Key Stage 1. This marks an important transition for children as they get used to new ways of working, beginning to move away from learning through play and establishing routines and independent learning.

Religious Education

We follow a scheme called 'The Way, The Truth and The Life'. Currently discussing and learning all about ‘Mary Mother of God'.

Physical Education

Please make sure you have your indoor and outdoor P.E. kit in school every day. Take it home on Friday for washing!

Outdoor kit includes, trainers, socks, joggers, hoodie or tracksuit.
