Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!


In Year 1 the team is Miss Hunt, Mrs Day, Mrs Wallace, Mrs Tovey and Mrs Walsh.


We are looking forward to a SUPER year!


Transition from Reception to Year 1


When in Reception, Tapestry is used to record observations that then help assess your children against the EYFS curriculum. Tapestry also allowed fantastic regular opportunities for individual and visual feedback between school and home.


In Year 1 the children follow the National Curriculum and assessment is carried out in a different way. However, we still take lots of photos of the children's learning!


From Year 1 onwards the children still enjoy a thematic curriculum where learning experiences are linked across subjects. We share the children's learning at the end of each short term in the form of a 'Celebration of Learning' and 'Photo story'.


For the first few weeks, as part of our transition, we will post a short weekly update about some of the activities that we have been doing. We hope that this will encourage a dialogue between you and your child about their time in school that week.




Book Change


Books will be changed every Tuesday and Friday.


If your child finishes their reading book before the allocated book change day, then please feel free to widen their reading experience by reading books from home or the library. 



If you would like your child to have milk at school, please order it from the school office as it is not provided, without payment, after Reception.


Our Topic this term is Dinosaur Detectives.

We have not told the children this yet as we are planning a surprise Wow day next Monday (9th September) so please keep our new topic as a surprise! Thank you!

Below are links to our Knowledge Organiser (facts and vocabulary that we hope all children will be familiar with by the end of the topic), 

our Topic Web (information about what we will be covering this term) and our Home School Links (ideas for you to do with you children at home). We hope you enjoy this topic as much as we do!
