Miss Jones, Mrs Challoner, Miss Grimes and Mrs Hobbis will work across the team. 

In Year One we continue to build upon the structured approach introduced at the end of Reception. We use elements of the Early Years Curriculum as well as the National Curriculum to develop the children's progressive learning. Throughout the year we will be encouraging the children to become more independent in their learning.

Parents As Partners

Following on from Reception, we are keen to keep you heavily involved in your child's learning throughout Year One. For this reason we will use the following methods to ensure effective communication.

Termly Newsletters As well as school newsletters, you will also receive a bulletin all about Year 1. This will come to you via Parent Mail.
A weekly Dear Parents letter This will give you reminders and information about the week ahead as well as ways to support your child at home. You will find this on our Year 1 notice board and it will be sent to you via Parent Mail.
Our website pages Here you will find copies of our Newsletters and Dear Parents.
