Welcome to Year 1

Have a look at what we get up to throughout the year. We will work hard but we will have lots of fun too! Mrs Bush is our teacher and Mrs Briffett is our teaching assistant along with Mrs Doyle.

World Book Day 2022

We had a lovely day dressed as our favourite book characters, we used coins to pay for our favourite books in the Year 1 book shop. We also worked collaboratively to create a giant Elmer using multilink.

At the beginning of the year we would usually hold a 'Meet the Teacher' afternoon, however, in the current circumstances, this unfortunately cannot go ahead.


Please see the attached Powerpoint for lots of information regarding your child's time in Year 1. 

Our First Few Weeks in Year 1

Wow! We are having such a great time in Year 1. We really loved getting outside to do our maths this term and have been weighing, measuring and finding number bonds to ten. As part of our geography topic, we have been looking at the United Kingdom and  learning about different traditional, regional foods. We have tasted Scottish shortbread and even made Welsh rarebit. In PE, we even had a martial arts taster session.



The children have settled really well into Year 1 and are producing some lovely work. We have been looking at neat presentation of our work as well as producing some lovely self-portraits.
