Lydgate Infant | Welcome
Aiming High and Having Fun!

Year 1


Welcome to Year 1!

Our aim in Y1 is to ensure children have a happy, smooth and successful transition from the Foundation Stage into Key Stage One. The Y1 curriculum builds upon and extends children’s experiences in F2. Creativity in learning is very important and we create lots of fun challenges for the children to explore independently as part of our continuous provision within class. Children are steadily introduced to more formal learning and they remain motivated and challenged through a range of exciting topics based around their own interests - for example some of our learning themes this year are ‘Pirates’, ‘Animals’ and ‘Superheroes’!

Thank you for coming to visit our blog! We will be continually updating it so please come back soon to find out more about all the exciting things we have been up to, what the children have been learning and to take a look at their fantastic work!

Year 1 Team.

    Year 1 Trip

    Last week, Year 1 enjoyed a trip to the Tropical Butterfly House. We saw many of the animals that we have been learning about and the children listened to a workshop called scales, fur and feathers. In the workshop, children had the chance to touch the animals and get close to them.

    We also watched a bird show and listened to a talk about meerkats. This was followed by a visit inside the butterfly house to finish. 

    Thank you to all of the adults who offered their help - it was a fantastic day!
