Year 1

Welcome to Year 1

There are 3 classes in Year 1. The teachers are Miss Critchley, Mrs Monaghan and Miss Merry. Four teaching assistants also work with us; Mrs Turner, Miss Bailey, Mrs Hann and Miss Flitcroft.  

The children use all three Y1 classrooms throughout the day. The three classrooms are specially designed for the children to learn each of the core subjects; Literacy, Numeracy and Science. The classrooms are set up to enable the children to take part in a range of independent learning and teacher led activities. The children also take part in a range of foundation subjects including Music, Art, ICT, Design & Technology, PE, History, Geography, RE, French & SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning).  

Our topics this year will be:

Autumn- Why can't we live at the bottom of the sea?

              Why does it get darker earlier in winter?

Spring- Why is the iPad more fun than mum and dad's old toys?

             How does your garden grow?

Summer- Why are tigers not like humans?

            What do aliens think of life on earth?
