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 have been exploring printing in their art lessons this half term and here you can see just a few of their works of art. They looked at the work of Andy Warhol, in particular how he used the same image several times but using different colours. They used fruit shapes to create their own prints and mixed their own colours to produce their final product.
Before the holidays, Year 1 made beautiful Easter cards to take home. They used paper and card to make 3D daffodils. As you can see they are very proud of their creations!
