Year 1




Welcome to our Year 1 page! Year 1 is an extremely important and significant year for all the children. As the children transition from early years to year 1 we aim to build on their skills, knowledge, experience, independence, curiosity and love of learning. We have lots of exciting learning planned this term including building castles and a school trip. At the heart of all our learning is the knowledge that we come together as a family and the love of God is with us all, so welcome to our community.
