 Our new themes are very exciting to learn about. We will be learning and applying lots of new skills throughout the school year to prepare you for Year 2.


Once a week we will go to the I.C.T. suite.  We will draw pictures, learn how to enter text, record sounds, create a powerpoint and use the internet.


In R.E we will learn about some of the different religions in the world and how to be kind and caring towards each other.

Educational Visits

During Y1 we hope to make several visits out of school. In the past we have taken the children to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park, Conisborough Castle, Wood Lane Centre, Sheffield cathedral and for walks around the local area.
