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.

During the current period of school closure, the school will be working with Sheffield Children's University (see the 'Extra-Curricular' tab under 'Parent Info') to signpost online learning materials, and will also be emailing home learning activities and other information directly to yourselves as F2 parents and carers to support your child's learning at home.
