Year 1

Welcome to the wonderful world of year 1.

During this year your child will build upon the skills they have developed in EYFS, gaining further independence and confidence. Phonics will continue to be of high importance in order to develop our reading and writing skills.

We will enhance our learning about the world through exciting creative curriculum topics such as; Penguins, Possums and Pigs, Fire! Fire! Growth and Green fingers, Family Album, The Great Outdoors and Robots!

Throughout the year there will be opportunities for enrichment’s including visits to museums, theatres and special visitors coming to work with us in the classroom
