Year 1 is taught by Abigail Gray. It is the first year of the National Curriculum and where the children’s learning develops and begins to fall into place. It is a time of transition from the Early Years and the learning becomes more formal, with an emphasis on number, language and literacy, including phonics. Other projects that Year 1 participate in are creating a holiday brochure for Egypt and a frozen planet fact file. In both these projects the children get to explore environments, artifacts and use videos to build up their knowledge.
