To make the experience of transition easier for the children, the Year 1 classes are run in a similar way to Reception, based on the Foundation Stage Principles with an emphasis on learning through play. As the year progresses and the children become more settled and mature we introduce more whole class teaching and independent group work.

We have had such a sporty couple of weeks! We loved all our excellent activities last week such as archery, ballet, Zumba, Karate and gymnastics. This week we competed in style at Sports Day and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!
Thank you for supporting your children by attending or walking us to Dinton Fields and back.
Please note as we have not been sending home Year 1 common exception words, your child’s English homework book has been kept at school.
We have enjoyed continuing to learn about minibeasts and have found out some amazing facts in books and online.
We will be taking Year 1 to an end of year picnic in Richmond Park on Monday 17th July. We are aiming to get to the little fenced garden near Kingston Gate by 1.30pm. Teachers will be bringing biscuits and juice. Parents are warmly invited to join us there or to meet us at school and walk up with us. Feel free to bring a small snack for the whole class eg fruits, crisps. We will have eaten lunch!
To support your child’s learning at home you could:
Look at any insects you find in the garden. What do they look like? What was the habitat like?
We will be finding change from 10p and 20p . Practise counting on form the price to the coin amount, eg a toy costs 16p and you pay with a 20p coin, so count on 17p,18p,19p,20p =4p change
