Welcome to Year 1
Teachers - Mrs Spencer-Burton & Mrs Askill
Teaching Assistant - Mrs Tudor
Our aim in Year 1 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. Please don’t hesitate to come and see us either before or after school if you have any questions or queries.
