Class 1 have had a fantastic start to the year and the new children have settled so well. The Year 1 children have shown they are enjoying the roles and responsibilites that comes with being a Year 1 and are great role models. We love to bring our learning to life with exciting, varied activities and experiences for the children. The children are kept safe and secure at all times whilst being able to take risks and think critically too. Their learning is enhanced by accessing a broad and balanced curriculum whilst learning respect for others and co operation.

We are very much looking forward to the year ahead! Please find below our topics over the year and any resources that will support you and your child in their learning.
