Year 1

Hello everyone and welcome to Year 1!

Please meet below the adults that make up our Year 1 team. We have:

  • Mrs A Johnson who is the lead teacher for Class 4;
  • Mrs L Tweedie who is the lead teacher for Class 5;
  • Mrs A Briggs who is the Teaching and Learning Partner across both classes.

On this page you will find out lots of information about what your child is learning across the curriculum (this will build as the year progresses).

You will also find a termly letter outlining curriculum enhancements.

Should you need any further information regarding provision in Year 1, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the team through Class Dojo.

Best wishes,
