Year One is a happy, vibrant, fun environment to discover the many new skills of learning. In the Autumn we provide a balance of ‘Child centred play’ and academic learning inspiring all our children to learn and develop at their own ability.
The Summer term is full of exciting Traditional stories, we become authors!
“Everyone thinks that Little Red Riding Hood is such a good girl but she she was the one who wandered off the path! It’s not my fault that they are really tasty! Remember your capital letters, finger spaces and full stops kids or I will huff and I will puff and blow your classroom down!”
“Join me in the Autumn to discover the wonders of the universe, learn about the planets inside the planetarium. You will become an explorer just like me! ‘It’s one small step for man, one giant leap for Year One.”

Throughout the year we explore the seasons, watching for changes in the weather, our local environment, food and clothing. We record the changes through photos, drawings, recordings and writing. As our educational visit we experience Saltholme to explore other habitats and environments.
Through our Design and Technology curriculum we practise lots of cooking skills, cutting, chopping, peeling and slicing preparing snack for all our friends.
In the Spring we investigate toys old and new, learning about the history of teddy bears. We experience the fun of making and managing our own Toy Museum and Café.
