Class information

Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

In Year 1, children are supported to make the transition from EYFS to their first year following the National Curriculum. Although the school day in Year 1 is more structured than it is in Reception, we provide many opportunities to learn, both indoors and outdoors, through exploration and using learning resources. At St John's CE, we foster a positive attitude towards learning, with children becoming more resilient and independent learners. To help our children reach their full potential extra guidance and support are given where needed. 

Our topics enable our children to make connections in their learning and inspire their imaginations. 

Term 1: Nature Explorers

Term 2: Toys

Term 3: Amazing Me

Term 4: Animals

Term 5: Up, Up and Away

Term 6: Summertime

We look forward to working with you to ensure that your child has a happy, busy and successful year. Thank you for your support and cooperation.
