Welcome to Year One


Welcome to our Year 1 page. We hope your child has a happy time in Year 1 while they get used to being in the 'big' school! Teachers are available each day before and after school to answer and questions you may have about  changes and new routines in the school that may affect your child.


In Year 1, your child will be in one of three classes:


Taj Mahal (Mrs Patel and Mr Ranzetta) 

The Great Wall of China (Miss Rai)

Rialto (Mrs Dulay)


Please look at the class pages for information about your own child's class.


Your child may be taught by a different teacher for Phonics lessons.


There are also Teaching Assistants .  Miss Sharma, Mrs Varrachia and Mrs Devi are the teaching assistants  who will also help your child to learn while they are in Year One.


Over the Year, we will teach the Year 1 curriculum through six different different topics; one topic for each half term.


Our topic for this half term (Summer 1) is Land Ahoy! As part of this topic, we will be taking the children to visit Beaumanor Hall in May. The children will be learning about the difference continents and oceans and also physical and human features of the world. 


Please share atlases and talk about different places to visit in the world.  You can visit the school library or local library.


Best wishes

The Year One Team
