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


Zoolab visit to Year 1

On the 3rd of March as part of Year One’s Africa topic, we were lucky enough to have such an exciting visit from Zoolab. They brought in lots of different animals for us to see such as snakes, tarantulas, gerbils, millipedes, tortoises and a giant African snail! We got to learn all about them by asking lots of different questions and some of us were brave enough to hold or touch them. It was amazing! 

Please see the gallery for some 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


Nocturnal Animals

Squirrel and Rabbits classes recently proudly performed their nocturnal animal dances to their parents. They looked amazing in their super animal costumes and masks!
