Year 1

Hello and Welcome to Year 1

There are two class teachers in Year One. Miss Moles teaches on Mondays and Tuesdays and Mrs. Miles on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.  Mrs Masterson is the teaching assistant. In Year 1 lessons are balanced between child-initiated learning, as well as more formal lessons. A good transition from Reception into Year 1 is paramount and we ensure that all children gradually and successfully adapt to the new expectations.

Throughout the year we focus on reading, phonics and simple sentence structure in English. In Maths the initial emphasis is on counting up and

down, as well as recognition and  place value. In Science, the children focus on seasonal changes, animals including humans, and


All subjects are fun, relevant and interactive.  We believe that in order to learn, children must gain as many first-hand experiences as possible, and everyone should enjoy what they are doing.

Learning is great fun in Year 1!

LO: To identify key events in a story

This week we have been listening to the story Voices in the Park by Anthony Browne. The book is about four different voices (characters) who tell the story of a walk in the park. We have been discussing how the characters feel and how to order key events in the story.
