Year 1


Year 1 Staff



Hello! Welcome to Year 1.  


We are so excited to be teaching in Year 1, an important year as the children transition from EYFS to KS1. Our aim is to ensure that all pupils feel happy, supported and challenged through quality first teaching within their classroom environment. By continuing to provide the foundations of knowledge through a carefully designed and enriching curriculum, we aim to empower children so they can critically apply what has been taught and build confidence and resilience.   


Over the year, children will continue to build on their understanding of key skills in Maths and English whilst developing new knowledge across our wide and diverse curriculum. To name a few areas they will study, pupils will discover the history of planes and significant figures such as Walter Tull in the development of football in the UK. In addition, we will also be exploring the local area as part of our geography curriculum, and learn to understand different religious beliefs and communities in RE. For Science, we will explore key scientific topics on animals, seasons, materials and plants, and develop other carefully sequenced skills and knowledge across Computing, Music, PE, PSHE, DT, Art, and French. Additionally, in Summer 2023, the children in Year 1 will undergo their statutory phonics screening. 


With this, we will continue to grow children’s cultural capital through excursions and workshops, pupil leader opportunities, Global Learning lessons, school and class assemblies, concerts and plays, and varying competitions. Just some of the exciting extracurricular experiences booked this academic year include a trip to the local church to learn about the birth of Jesus and a visit to the Science Musuem to support our understanding of forces. 


By the end of Year 1, we are confident your child will have had an enriching experience which has built on their understanding of key topics and personally developed them as individuals who are equipped with the skills to make a smooth transition into KS2 over the next two years.
