We are always learning lots of new and exciting things in Year 1. We aim to provide a happy learning environment where the children will develop a love of learning and become enthusiastic and independent learners. We strive to encourage them to be the best they can be and seek to provide a wide range of learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom.
Our school motto is ‘Christ be our light and our guide’. In Year 1 we teach the children to follow Jesus’ example by encouraging them to be kind, caring and respectful towards others.
Year 1 children will be working towards their Phonics screening check in the summer term and we will be preparing them well for this and would appreciate your support with this.
We know that the children will be happy each day if they come prepared and are ready for the school day, please can we ask that they bring their red study bag and reading book; a water bottle, a coat, PE kit (white top, red shorts and black plimsolls) and a pair of wellies for our outdoor learning.
Thank you for your support . If you have any questions at any time, please do not hesitate to have a word with us.
Mrs Carson, Mrs O’Keeffe and Mrs Stephenson
