We can't wait to embark on this journey of learning and exploration with our Year 1 class. It's going to be a fantastic autumn term filled with growth, creativity, and unforgettable moments. Let's make it a term to remember!

 

In Year 1, our aim is to ensure that your child experiences a smooth transition from the Foundation Stage to Key Stage One and that the Year 1 curriculum builds upon and extends the experiences that your child has had in Reception. Learning through play both indoors and outdoors will continue to be an important part of the school day, and your child will gradually be eased into more formal learning as the year goes on so that they remain motivated, enthused, eager and independent learners
