Year 1


The Year 1 team

  • Mrs Lunn – Teacher 1SL
  • Mrs Greenhalgh – Teacher 1GG (Monday, Tuesday)
  • Mrs Gallagher – Teacher 1GG (Wednesday - Friday)
  • Mrs Drinkall – Teaching Assistant
  • Mrs Kinder - Teaching Assistant

Our aims

  • To ensure that the children experience a smooth transition from the Foundation Stage to Key Stage One.
  • That the Year 1 curriculum builds upon and extends the experiences that the children have had in Foundation.
  • Learning through play will continue although the children will gradually be eased into more formal learning as the year goes on so that they remain motivated, enthused and eager learners

Maths isn’t just about adding

and taking away! Our teachers

try to make our lessons as fun

and practical as possible. When

learning about weights and

measures we even have the

opportunity to cook – and

eat the results!



We enjoy writing poetry, fiction and non-fiction in Year 1…but

it’s not all about writing! We also get to dress up for drama

activities, and ‘Show and Tell’ is always popular!



‘Materials’ is an exciting topic. We carried out an

investigation to see which material would be best to clean up a

spilt drink. We have learnt that some metals are magnetic. Best

of all we built houses that could not be blown down by the big

bad wolf!!


We have also been thinking about materials in Art. We have done some weaving using different fabrics and made some very tricky God’s eyes!




After learning

about our local

area we followed

Barnaby Bear to

France and then

to India. We tasted

some French food

– but not frogs



Visitors came to talk to us about India. They dressed up in Indian clothes and we were able to ask them questions that we had written during a Literacy lesson.

Role Play

Both classes have access to role play. 1SL currently have a ‘Bob the Builder’ area to link with our Science topic. 1GG have a Church to link with our ‘Celebrations’ topic in RE.



In History we learn lots of things about the past. During the Summer

term we learn about homes long ago. We visit Killerton House which

is brilliant! This is us arriving on a double decker bus! We get to

dress up in clothes that the Victorians wear.


We found out how the laundry was done –

they didn’t have washing machines!

It’s a lovely day but we come home exhausted!
