Year 1

Welcome to Year 1

The focus of Year One is to continue to build on the fantastic building blocks of learning they acquire over their year in Year R. The beginning of Year One reflects the learning layout of Year R to ensure the children have a smooth transition over this time. Our learning is cross curricular so children get the opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge they have learnt through Year R and One. We work hard to develop positive learning attitudes so the children have a ‘can do’ attitude about any challenge they are faced with and have the passion for learning in all areas of the curriculum!

Year 1 Events & Learning


Trip to Blue Reef Aquarium

On Tuesday 6th March Year 1 went on a school trip to the Blue Reef Aquarium in Portsmouth. We had a great time looking at all the different species of fish and we even got to touch a Starfish, Crab and Spider Crab – they felt very hard and bumpy!

We had a great day and now we look forward to putting all that we have learnt into our very own non-fiction book about sea creatures.

Please see the Gallery for more photos.


Dance Mats

In October, Southampton University bought in some Dance Mats for us - we had great fun trying out different rhythms and sounds on them
