Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

Welcome to Year 1 where we are continuing our exciting journey together and building upon all that the children have learnt in Reception. The children in Year 1 will be taught by Mrs Brendon and Mrs Hemming with support from Mrs McGonigle, Miss Ali and Mrs Canning.

We will support the children to make the transition from play based learning in Foundation Stage to more structured, independent learning in Year 1. We use lots of practical activities within our lessons and gradually progress to becoming more independent so that we can work through the Year 1 curriculum.

We are committed to providing a rich, stimulating and varied curriculum and to develop your children into confident, curious and capable independent learners.

Our Catholic faith is very important to us and we try to live out our school mission each day: one family, following Christ, learning together and making a difference. The small things we do for our friends and family can make a BIG difference if we do them with love.

We look forward to working with you. We believe that strong relationships with our parents and carers, build the foundations upon which your child thrives.
