Year 1 (2022-23)

Welcome to Year 1!

I’m looking forward to an exciting year with you all covering lots of interesting topics along the way. We are going to work hard but have lots of fun too!

We are going to look at a range of books which cover a range of themes, including traditional tales, animals and the seaside. In Maths, we are going to be building on your knowledge of number and calculations from EYFS.

Please look at our curriculum overview to find out what interesting topics we are coving this term in the wider curriculum. They might include seasonal change in Science, old toys in History, the weather and seaside in Geography or developing your skills in Art.
