Year 1

Welcome to Year 1
Year 1 is a special year group where children really begin to become more independent learners, taking on more responsibility towards their own learning as well as having chances to be inquisitive, explore and be creative! Children continue their learning journey and build on their knowledge and key skills from the Early Years.
In year 1, your child will 'grow their learning' from a curriculum that is carefully matched to their ability and own interests, through quality teaching, exciting trips and forest school. 
Children will be appointed to be members of the school council, eco-warrior or blossom buddies. These rolls will be changed each term, giving children a taste of whole school responsibility. 
By the time the children leave us in year 1, they will have reached their potential in reading, writing and numeracy and be prepared for life in Year 2. They'll be eager to experience more challenges and successes along the way.
