Welcome to Year 1
Teacher - Mrs Whitaker
(Maternity cover for Mrs Spencer-Burton)
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 me either before or after school if you have any questions or queries.
watch over me
and care for me
just as you cared for
the child Jesus;
and by your help,
may I come to know
and so grow
and the favour of God.
