Welcome to Year 1

Welcome to Year 1 and the Autumn Term

Our teaching team includes Miss Hopkins and Mrs Stevens (Class Teachers) and Miss Tetley (Teaching Assistant)

Our Autumn term theme is ‘Belonging’ where we will be looking at what it means to belong, where we belong, the importance of kindness and overcoming challenges. Along the way we will be embracing new opportunities and challenging ourselves through our learning. Our Autumn bookshelf is full of inspirational, high-quality texts which we place at the centre of our engaging curriculum. The bookshelf gives us fantastic opportunities to develop cross curricular links across all subject areas.
