Mrs Christie and Mrs Barker would like to welcome you to Year 1.
We are moving into a new classroom this year (the old Year 2 classroom) so that we can have access to the outdoor space which is attached.
We will be looking to develop this over the year so any ideas or help you can offer, please come and see us! We have also purchased some new furniture to go in our new classroom, including children’s trays and accessible shelving units.
We have lots of exciting topics planned for the year ahead. The first one is all about the fantastic author Julia Donaldson. We will be reading some of her books and doing lots of fun activities – including a ‘Room on the Broom’ day where you can dress up as one of the characters and get involved in some magic fun and games!!
The second topic in the Autumn term is ‘Once Upon a Time’ where we look at traditional stories and then write our own versions. Of course, we also have an exciting time in the run up to Christmas!
Further topics during the year are ‘Frozen Lands’, ‘Dinosaurs’, ‘In the Garden’ and ‘Big Wide World’.
We look forward to working with you and your children throughout the year so that they are happy in school, learn and progress to be the best they can be.
On Thursday 14th February we will be going on a trip to the Arctic!! (The big tree at the bottom of the school field!)
Please send your child with full winter gear on this day. Hat, scarf, gloves, boots, sunglasses, snowsuit/waterproofs.
Here are a couple of photos from our day in the 'Arctic'. To view the rest of the photos from our day please click the link Year 1 Arctic Photos

Moorlands Discovery Trip - May 2019
On Friday 10th May Year 1 had a trip to the Moorlands Discovery Centre at the Longshawe Estate. We were learning all about plants and trees. We enjoyed a day of explorating and discovering the natural world. We became botanists going on a plant exploration through the woodland, wildflowers and kitchen garden.
