The Year 1 team would like to welcome you to the new academic year. We hope you've all had a lovely break and your child is ready to learn new and exciting things we have in store for them. We strive to make our learning environments interesting and exciting where we will develop a range of thinking skills through first hand experiences. We will provide a stimulating, challenging and friendly working environment where every child is valued.
The children will still experience play, as we feel it plays a crucial role in children’s learning in all areas especially helping get top grips with the National Curriculum. To enhance the children's learning we will be providing experiences which will include off-site trips.
If you have any questions about Year 1 please do not hesitate to contact your class teacher.

Well done to Mason in Butterfly Class and Connor in Bumblebee Class who were the winners of the Carriage race.
