Year One

Welcome to our Year 1 class page!

Year 1 Information.

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." Nelson Mandela

Welcome to our Year 1 class page: Mr. Martin-Bird, Miss Booth, Mrs Brown and amazing children!

We look forward to sharing our year 1 achievements and news with you here. Hopefully you will find out all the information you need about life in Year 1 here - if not, just ask!

As always, I’m always available for a chat if you need anything at all, if I am not around at the end of the day please do ask Mrs Brown anything and she will be happy to assist. I know how important this first year in Key Stage One is for your child and you, and I want to make the transition from Reception into the Infants as smooth as possible. 

Again, as always, thank you for your continued support,

Mr M Martin-Bird

Curriculum: Summer 2:


In our Religion lessons this half term, children will be thinking about the Resurrection story and also miracles.


We will be looking at the Big Bad Owl, which promises plenty of drama as the grumpy owl stays on his grumpy branch! We are also reading The Twits at hometime, which I fear I am enjoying more than the children!


Our Maths sessions will focus on multiplication as we look at arrays, as well as continuing to work on number bonds to 20.


This half term we are looking forward to plenty of artwork and learning about 'Wonderful Weather' (here's hoping for more than just rain for the children to talk about). We will be examining two artists in particular this summer. The first is Juan Miro, who is known for 'Magical Realism' and Wassily Kadinsky. We have invited an artist to come and work with the children to create a piece odf artwork that they will be able to take home. They are very excited at the prospect and I am really looking forward to seeing what they create - we have some budding artists in Year 1 and we have high hopes...
