Year 1

Welcome to Year 1: The Flamboyant Flamingos and Magnificent Monkeys!

We have lots of exciting learning activities planned for the year ahead based around the themes of plants, animals, toys and weather. We make each topic a hands on learning experience and enhance our work as much as possible with trips out and visitors to our school. We are also very lucky to be visited once a week by the team at Yogabugs.

In  Year 1 we feel that it is important for the children to share their experiences with you so we encourage you to discuss their learning with them at home and join in the fun!


We always welcome you into school to see if you have any questions or would like help to support your child.


We hope you and your child enjoy Year 1 just as much as we do!

3.12.19: The Snowman

We had a lovely time on our trip to watch The Snowman in front of a live orchestra. Take a look at some of our photos below from our first Year 1 trip. 

3.12.19: Key Strings

We were really lucky to have the incredible Key Strings performers visit us this morning! The children had an amazing time listening to and discovering a range of different strings instruments.

The children in R/1A really enjoyed working with a visiting sculptor to help create 'Oliver Twist' inspired sculptures  ready for World Book Day next year.  The children worked really hard and are looking forward to seeing the completed sculptures around school soon!


The children in the Flamboyant Flamingos class have spent today finding out about why we see so many people wearing a poppy. We went outside to take part in the 2 minute silence at 11am and we have spent the day making our own poppies.

Autumn 1:

We have really enjoyed getting to know the children as they settle into Year 1.  The children have taken part in lots of fun activities and they have already made good progress in their lessons.  Take a look at some of our photos below:

We love Year 1! Take a look at what we have been getting up too.


 We had an amazing day out visiting White Post Farm!  The children got the opportunity to meet and feed lots of different animals, including llamas! We even enjoyed a tractor ride around the farm. Have a look at our photos below to see what we got up to: 



The children have had a fantastic time during our Outdoor Wow Day. They were finding out about the wildlife around our school grounds. They enjoyed pond dipping, bird watching, mini beast hunting and building a bug hotel! Take a look at some of our photos below.

Y1 Outdoor Wow Day!

The children had a great time finding out about the different types of animals, the meerkat was a firm favourite with everyone but the tarantula was a bit scary!

Year 1 children enjoyed their pirate day, they had made maps and telescopes to help find the treasure and sang some pirate songs for their parents and grandparents with the reception and nursery children.
