Welcome to Year 1!


Thank you for visiting our Year 1 page. We will be sharing lots of the activities, visits and events that we have been involved in on this page. We hope you enjoy sharing our learning with us. 

House Sale!

Following a visit from local Estate Agent, Emma, a few weeks ago, the children in Year 1 have been hard at work designing houses for Fairy Tale characters and making Estate Agent style brochures to entice people to buy them.

On Friday 15th December, Emma returned to see all of the hard work that the children have been doing and she was SO impressed! The children also had visitors from Year 2 and Year 4 to the House Sale event and they carefully explained the key features of their house and the design process to their guests. 

Here are some pictures of the children at the House Sale event and their amazing house creations - with their superb designs, whirlpool baths and huge modern kitchens, who wouldn't want to buy one of them?!

Our Fairy Tale Castle Day

On Monday 9th October, Year 1 had a visit from The Story Teller who needed help to provide the entertainment for the Royal Wedding Banquet. The children listened carefully, captivated by the story of Sleeping Beauty and the revelation that she had finally woken up.


During the morning the children prepared the castle by making fragrant potions, banquet name labels and candles. They also enjoyed leather stamping, sewing a pouch and decorating cakes.


In the afternoon, each child was given a role at the wedding banquet - some children became the Royal Family and their servants, some were jesters and actors while others sang and danced. All of Year 1 were thoroughly immersed in the event and a great time was had by all.


Many thanks to the parents who came to help with the event and enabled the whole day to run very smoothly.

Meet the Teacher


Many thanks to all the Parents and Carers who came to our Meet the Teacher session on Monday 11th September. For those of you that were unable to make it - please find the PowerPoint below.


Hand outs from the meeting were sent home in each child's Book Bag - including a handy leaflet containing information about all of the sounds that we will be covering in Letters and Sounds in Year One.
