Year 1 – Bees and Fireflies
Welcome to Year 1's Home Page
Year 1 is made up of Bees and Fireflies.
Fireflies are taught by Miss Jackson (QTS) and Mrs Gorsuch (Montessori Teacher)
Bees are taught by Mrs Everett (QTS), Mr Claxton (QTS) and Mrs Ware (Montessori Teacher)
The Year One Teachers all work hard together to enable a smooth transition for all the children in their move from Reception to Key Stage One where the learning is more structured. We aim to create a happy, secure and stimulating environment where each child is valued, treated as an individual and where they feel safe to accept challenges and to apply their knowledge confidently.
In Year One the children start their day with Phonics lessons, the children are in small ability groups and their progress is checked regulary. In classes the children have Numeracy and Literacy lessons daily which are planned and delivered by the QTS Teachers. The Montessori Teachers plan and deliver Topic every afternoon which is very interesting and varied for the children. During the week the children also have PE, MFL and Music with specialist Teachers.
In Year One you will find happy and motivated children who are enjoying their learning and making good progress. We have high expectations of all our children to ensure that they can reach their potential. Positive behaviour is promoted in our school and children are expected to display good manners and respect for each other.
