Welcome to Year 1
Our year 1 team consists of class 1T, class teacher Mrs Bracegirdle supported by Mrs Wade and class 1P, class teacher Mrs Davidson supported by Mrs Brown. Year 1 is your child’s introduction into a more formal education and with this in mind we work very closely with our reception team to ensure the transition from Reception to Year 1 is a smooth and successful one for your child. Year 1 builds on the foundation skills to learning children achieve during their Reception Year empowering them to become independent inquisitive learners. A typical day in Year 1 is a busy one consisting of Maths and Read Write Inc each morning followed by Topic activities and continuous provision after lunch.
In Year 1 we encourage parents to be involved in our exciting topics as much as possible. We will invite parent volunteers to support our visits and trips and all parents will be invited to attend our End of Topic Celebrations where you can take part in celebrating all the lovely experiences your child has had. Parents are also encouraged to take part in Early Morning Reading sessions with their children before school in our classrooms and become Beach School Buddies to help with our Beach School Sessions.
We shall produce a newsletter each half-term to highlight recent activities and events in our year group and to show what is planned for the next half-term.
