We grow and learn in the footsteps of Jesus

Hello and welcome to Year 1!

In this class we have Miss Hillon - the class teacher and Mrs Gibson - the Senior Teaching Assistant. We are also pleased to have Mrs Newall, another Senior Teaching Assistant with us every afternoon to help us with our reading.

The Year 1 children are a wonderful class who all try their best to work hard all the time. The children have wonderful manners and values and aim to grow and learn in the footsteps of Jesus, just like our school mission statement says.

In Year 1 we learn about lots of great topics such as Significant Explorers like Neil Armstrong, local area history such as mining and also about farms and animals. 

Our Art and Design & Technology topics are also really exciting, as we get to bake, experiment with food, design and create amazing structures and models and also learn new skills and techniques using a range of equipment.


We have lots of wonderful experiences in Year 1 which makes our learning lots of fun! Take a look at our gallery to see what we've been up to.
