Welcome to Year 1 Slides 2020  /  Year 1 Slides Video

Welcome to the Year 1 page. In Year 1 children move away from a free choice play based curriculum and are taught from the National Curriculum.   Due to the abrupt ending of our school year, this year we will have an extended transition period within Year 1 during the Autumn term. We will set up our classroom like reception which will allow the children free choice alongside the teaching of the Year 1 curriculum. Year 1 is another important yet exciting year in your child’s learning.

The Year 1 Team

The teachers in Year 1 are Ms Andrews (1A), Miss Young (1Y) and Miss Barrow (1B).
