Year 1


We are very lucky to have a team of experienced staff who give the children a range of exciting hands on learning experiences. 

We aim to create a friendly, nurturing environment in which the children feel safe, secure and comfortable in expressing themselves. By encouraging and valuing the children's interests, we support them in exploring their own learning paths as they move through the year. We want to build on the children's natural curiosity and promote a lifelong love of learning.

Year 1 is a significant year at school as children move from the Early Learning Goals of Nursery and Reception to the National Curriculum. We are committed to making this transition as easy as possible.

In Maths, we continue to develop the children’s understanding of numbers, especially place value, and early calculation. This is achieved with an emphasis on learning through experience and use of games, problem-solving challenges and lots of hands on activities and equipment.

In Literacy we provide lots of opportunities for speaking and listening and role-play to support the children’s writing. The writing activities always relate to our topic and over the year, the children will explore writing in lots of different genres; labels and lists, instructions, poetry, recounts and narrative story writing.

Our first topic will be 'Ourselves'.

Is has been a fantastic week thinking about what it means to be healthy.  We have had to opportunity to work with Chester City Football Club, attend a Hoola Hooping workshop, make smoothies with pedal power and take part in activities planned and organised  by year 6.  We have also been taking part in Wake Up, Shake Up each morning to get us in the mood for learning.  Thank you to Year 5 for helping us.

We will all need the weekend to recover!  When you have the time, have a look in the gallery on the class page and the news section to see all the fun.

Next week we will be reading the book 'The tiger who came to tea ' by Judith Kerr and ordering numbers.



Thursday the 16th of November.

It has been a very exciting evening for the Year One Mini Kickers football team!  We played four matches winning all four.  This mean’t we got to the quarter finals against the Lache winning 2-0.  We were now in the semi final... We played Delamere in the semi-final.  We drew 2-2.

This put the team into a penalty shoot out.  This was nail biting, sadly we didn’t get through.  

Year One you were amazing.  You played brilliantly as a team, I am so proud of you.  Thank you to all the parents and relatives for you support in the cold!  Take a look at the photos in the gallery.
