Hello and welcome to Year 1!
For those of you who do not know me, my name is Mr Toone and I have worked in Year 1 alongside Miss Twist and Mrs Sheares since Christmas-time 2021. We are all very excited to learn and explore with you this year as we prepare to transition your children from a more child-led, exploratory approach to a more formal, knowledge based curriculum that echoes the pedagogy practiced across key stages 1 and 2!
It is lovely to see how the children have received not only myself, but a number of student teachers in Year 1 this term. They returned after Christmas both settled and ready to learn, and we are incredibly proud of how they have already made such a positive start to 2022.
We have such a fabulous year ahead and I hope that all of the children are looking forward to all of the amazing things that we are going to be learning!
You will find on this class page examples of children's work, guidance and documents to support your understanding of what and how your child is learning in Year one, exciting class news and activities that we get up to!
As always, please do not hesitate to make an appointment with either myself, Miss Twist or Mrs Sheares if you have any queries about our learning and we will always do our best to help!
Below are some useful links to support your child's learning, which you can logon to at any time and find some really useful activities and games.
