Welcome to Year 1


The teachers in Y1 are Mrs Dixon, Mrs Tapner and Mrs Taylor.

Our teaching assistants are Mrs Bennett, Mrs Mottram and Mrs Boardman.

We study exciting topics including Amazing me, Wild weather, Materials, Wild creatures, The Gunpowder plot, Kings and Queens and many more.

We enjoy learning these topics in a cross-curricular way using visits and special days to enhance our learning.

You might find us exploring the school grounds for natural objects, practising our letter sounds, making healthy food, creating sculptures out of clay or building machines out of Lego.

Find out more about the curriculum below. Be sure to keep up to date with what’s happening by following us on Twitter @Y1Y2CRA Optional homework and spelling lists are sent home via ParentMail every half term.

We always aim to provide a caring and supportive environment that encourages all children to achieve. We are very much looking forward to an enjoyable year!

Mrs Dixon, Mrs Tapner & Mrs Taylor
