Welcome to our Year 1 Class page

Year one begins the children’s journey into Key Stage One. We do lots of hands on learning through our inspiring and creative curriculum so it’s going to be an amazing year of investigating, exploring, learning and having fun together!

Please take some time to look at our learning journey as we progress through the year – we are proud of what we do and are very excited to share this with you. 

In Year 1, we want every child to be happy, excited and eager. We love nothing more than a bright smile coming through our classroom door every morning! In Year 1, we love challenges! We love to see you try your best and show us great independence and resilience. We are a classroom where we encourage every child to have the confidence to speak to all, so please share your stories every day. In Year 1 we all work together happily and we understand that ‘teamwork makes the dream work’.

We have a range of topics we will be exploring throughout the year and our ‘Big Questions’ this year are:

  • Autumn – How am I making history? What is it like there?
  • Spring – How have toys changed? What is the weather like in the UK? 
  • Summer – How have explorers changed the world? What is it like to live in Shanghai?

We look forward to sharing our new and exciting news with you about all the fantastic things that happen in our year 1 class.

In year one we love to read, so please scan the QR code to hear some of our favourite stories that we wanted to share with you.
