Welcome to Year 1
Welcome to Year 1 with Mrs Slater, 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! Next term our topic will be "Rio de Vida" - we are really looking forward to it. Be sure to look out for updates of the super things we have been upto on our class page. Some topics will include a creative homework project and we really do like you to be as creative and imaginative as possible!

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!
