Welcome to Year 1

A very warm welcome to Year 1 from Miss Spriggs (teacher) supported by Mrs Healy and Mrs Britton (teaching assistants).

Year 1 is an incredibly exciting year for all children, as the enter Key Stage 1 and develop their independence as learners.  We really prioritise the transition into Year 1. Children will be given child-initiated learning time each day where they will be able to facilitate their own learning inside the classroom and within the KS1 outdoor area.  Although learning becomes more formalised throughout the year, we also ensure that children are given the opportunities to develop their skills across the curriculum.

In order to preserve the relationships forged in Early Years and to support the transition to Year 1, our Key Stage 1 topics work on a two year rolling cycle, with Years 1 and 2 working together. As a team, we work hard to support each child to reach their full potential, grow in confidence and independence and to approach learning in a happy and contented manner helping them grow into well-rounded individuals.

This half term we were looking at using different materials to create fireworks art. We dipped chalk into water, used forks to paint and used wax crayons.


We also had Odd Socks Day to celebrate Anti Bullying Week. We designed our own odd socks. Can you guess who has what sock?

This half term we have been looking at animals in science. We decided to create our own pet paper plates.
