Welcome to Year 1
Welcome to Year 1 with Mr Morris, Mrs Goss and Miss Kingswood!
We have a very exciting year ahead of us as we begin Key Stage 1 and we believe it is extremely important to still have plenty of opportunities to explore a play based curriculum as well as developing our key skills and becoming even more independent.
This year began with our topic "Memory Box", learning about the past, ourselves and others. Other topics included "Superheroes", "Bright Lights- Big City". Summer Term starts with our exciting new topic, "Paws, Claws and Whiskers" where will be looking at animals in lots of fun and creative ways!
Some topics will include a creative homework project and we really do like you to be as creative and imaginative as possible!
As always, reading at home is particularly important and we encourage every child to read at home as much as possible to develop their skills learned at school.
The teachers and children in Year 1 are lookind forward to the exciting adventure they will embark on together this year and all of the wonerful things that we will achieve together!

The Gruffalo’s Child.
What a fabulous day we have had in F2. We have made our story map along with actions to retell the story of the Gruffalo's Child. Maybe the children could show you what we have learnt using the story map to help them!
Fire Service visit.
We have been so lucky to have a visit from the fire service! The fire fighters taught us about fire safety and showed us what they have to wear when they are putting fires out. We got chance to look at the fire engine and even had a go at...
