Year 1 2023 - 2024
At the heart of everything is a personalised approach to each unique individual as part of our Christian Community. The strong family ethos ensures that all children and staff feel valued, respected and grow in self-confidence. Enthusiastic and caring staff with high expectations, demonstrate care of the whole child. Through God’s guidance we encourage each and every child to 'let their light shine.'
Welcome to Year 1
Miss Cork is the Year 1 class teacher and we are very lucky to have Miss Moss supporting us every day. Mr Chesworth, an associate teacher from the University of Chester, will be joining us for the Spring Term.
Our aim is to ensure that the children experience a smooth transition from the Foundation Stage to Key Stage One. The Year 1 curriculum builds upon and extends the experiences that children have had in Reception. Learning through play will continue to be an important part of the school day, and the children will gradually be eased into more formal learning as the year goes on so that they remain motivated, enthused and eager learners.
As a rights respecting school, one of the first activities completed in September is our class charter. The children choose a number of articles which they feel must be met at school. It is then discussed how the adults (duty bearers) and the pupils (rights holders) in school ensure these rights are met.

Our class text for Spring 1 is ‘The Lion Inside’ by Rachel Bright and our class text for Spring 2 is ‘The Curious Case of the Missing Mammoth’ by Ellie Hattie. During this term, in Year 1, we will be learning all about animals with fur, feathers and scales! We will learn to classify animals and identify where in the world they live. We will also be studying Mary Anning and thinking about the legacy she left behind with her fossil findings. Our Spring term topic web below provides an overview of what we will be learning across all areas of the curriculum.
Reading books must be in school on a Monday and they will be changed on a Wednesday.
PE is on Wednesday and Thursday.
