Learning

Year 1

A warm welcome to Year 1. The classes names are St. David (Miss Davis) and St. Stephen (Mrs Sharpe). The staff team is made up of Mrs Frizell, Mrs Samuel, Mrs Maguire and Mrs Middleton.

Year 1 is lots of fun with great topics which the children really engage with: Houses, Castles, Toys (Yesterday and Today), Weather around the world, Birds and Animals. Our learning is cross curricular and as hands on as possible!

At the end of each term the children are set a S=P+A+C+E Challenge to practise the key skills that they have developed and to tie together their learning.

The children will enjoy a whole range of different activities with educational visits, visitors and workshops in school to support our learning too.

Each Year 1 class leads worship each year to which parents and carers are very much welcomed! Our prayer service is also a very special opportunity to come and see the children as they develop their spiritual, personal, emotional and social skills.

 

You can read more about the year in our termly Curriculum newsletters and our presentation from the Curriculum evening at the start of the year which can be downloaded from this page.

You can find out more about what we are learning in class this week here.

In June each year, Year 1 children take part in the National Phonics screening. More details about the screening and how to help your child will be shared with you later but you can see information from last year’s parent workshops by following the link above.

It was lovely to see so many parents at our additional curriculum workshop on how to help your child with phonics, reading and writing. The presentation shared at the evening can be downloaded from this page.
