Welcome to Year 1

A very warm welcome to Year 1! Year 1 is the first exciting step into Key Stage 1 and here we will be sharing with you the wonderful learning experiences that our Year 1 curriculum provides. We can't wait to meet your child and work together with you to help them learn and grow. 

Meet the team

We have two classes in Year 1, Foxes and Squirrels.

Mrs Barrett teaches Foxes class. 

Mrs Worsley teaches Squirrels class on Mondays, Tuesdays and every other Wednesday afternoon. Mrs Snook teaches the class on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

We have two wonderful Teaching Assistants supporting us with our learning in Year 1: Mrs Byford and Miss Totney.
