Year 1

Welcome to Year 1


Class Teacher - Miss Connolly

Classroom Assistant - Miss Riley


Year 1 have adopted the Gospel value & virtue of 'friendship' and 'hope'.

Friendship - John 15:15

Jesus said: I do not call you servants any more because a servant does not know what his master is doing. I speak to you as friends because I have told you everything that my Father has told me.

God wants to be your friend, give you good advice, and to be close to you when you need him.

Hope - Ephesians 1:2

Let us, who were first to hope in the Lord, praise God's glory!

Everybody has hope in something; the people who believe in God hope to see God one day.

Welcome to Year 1! All of the children have really impressed both myself and Miss Riley in the way that they have returned to school, we're really proud of how settled they are already! Our first topic this year is Dinosaurs. The children have already immersed themselves in small world play, creating their own Jurassic Park, sorting dinosaurs into groups and talking about similarities and differences. In Science and Geography we have been learning about the seasons with a particular focus on autumn, and we also have our Weather Centre set up in our role play corner. 

Maths - Ordering numbers
