Year 1

Welcome to Year One!

The staff in Year 1 from September are:

Class 6 – Mrs Hart (Class Teacher) and Mrs Rajput (LSA)

Class 7 – Mrs Scott (Year 1 Leader) and Miss Rowland (LSA)

Class 8  - Mrs Wanley  (Class Teacher) and Mrs Summers (LSA)

Also in Year 1 is Mrs Beyer (HLTA)

In Year 1, the children become more independent and take greater ownership of their learning. They are encouraged to tackle new concepts with enthusiasm and determination and become more confident in their own abilities.


The children will continue to develop their writing and maths skills through a range of lessons that will be linked to our exciting, new curriculum. Our topics include 'The Wild Woods', where we will learn about our local environment, investigate the signs of autumn and learn about the infamous Robin Hood; ‘Hear me ROAR’, where we will be learning about dinosaurs, the prehistoric era and animal groups; and ‘Flashback’, where children look a events within and beyond their living memory such as the millennium and the Great Fire of London.


Within all of our topics we will incorporate a WOW event; some of these are a visit to Coombe Abbey, a trip to All Things Wild, a special visit from a palaeontologist and an exciting adventure to a toy museum. The children’s learning will also take them outside daily, where we will use our natural environment to further enhance some of our topics. We look forward to inviting you to join us in school to work with  your children at our termly parent events and to celebrate your child's learning throughout the school year. 

The Year 1 Team look forward to welcoming your child and working with you to ensure your child has a happy and successful year.
