In Year 1, we work and play together, helping each other to achieve our very best. We try really hard to work independently, developing resilience and aiming high. We enjoy learning, exploring new topics and having fun!

For more information, parents please check our class dojo regularly.

Your teachers in Year One are Mrs Garrity and Miss Green

supported by Mrs Munro and Miss Elms.

 

In Year 1, we follow the 5W's by making sure everyone feels Welcome.

We share the Word of God through the things we say and do. 

We protect the Welfare of everyone we meet so that we all feel safe and happy at school. 

We Worship together, sharing our prayers and thoughts with God.

By doing these things we Witness the work and life of Jesus every day.
