Welcome to Year 1!

A very big welcome from Mrs Wright & Mrs Weeks. We hope Mrs Spittle will be back in school very soon. 

Meet the Year One team:

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 ‘The Resurrection'.

Physical Education

Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. Children should come in their PE kits on these days.
