What makes us so special?
Year 1 is a very special year, as it marks the transition from the Early Years environment to Key Stage 1. Although we are moving towards a more formal classroom setting, and are learning to do lots of new and exciting things, we still make plenty of time to have lots of fun and continue to discover the world around us. We have our own special outdoor area and enjoy spending ‘Muddy Mondays’ and ‘Welly Wednesdays’ outside, taking part in a range of fun and stimulating activities.
In Year 1, home reading is vital and all children are expected to read daily with a parent for a minimum of ten minutes. This can be a school book or any other reading material which interests the child.
In Year 1, we do PE twice a week – on Tuesdays and Fridays. Children will come home in their kit, so please ensure this is returned in time for the following lesson.
Reading books are changed on a Tuesday and Friday.
