What is your classroom like?

In Year 1 we are very lucky to have both an indoor and outdoor classroom, a huge playground and field for the children to enjoy. We have a small world area, a home corner and an art area complete with all the exciting resources children need to thrive. 

We are at the very end of our school nearest the Key Stage 1 playground. We have a trim trail and tyre area on the grass where the pupils in Key Stage 1 enjoy their lunch and break time while getting some fresh air. 

Which adults are in the class?

Mrs Wild, Miss Arber and Mrs Mckie all work in the Year 1 class and feel very lucky to have such wonderful children.

What do we do in Year 1?

Year 1 is jam packed full of exciting lessons and activities. Each day after our school collective worship we do phonics followed by english and then maths. In the afternoon we do RE, theme and take time to sit as a class and say our prayers and think about our mission. We sing songs, talk about our lives and how we can get closer to Jesus.

On a Wednesday and Thursday we do PE including ball games, dance and gymnastics.

What can you do to help your child?

Reading with your child each night will help your child to make good progress in English. You can also practise basic addition and subtraction skills. Sometimes we have homework linked to other areas of the curriculum, this will usually be in the form of an exciting project.
