Year 1


Everything is red in Year One:- the carpet, the chairs, and the tables! We can play in a bigger playground. We use the field in the summer. We all have our own trays with our names on. 

We enjoy reading stories and can choose our own reading books – every day if we want to! We make new friends and learn new things every day. 


In Year One, we choose what we want for lunch from the dinner menu – just like a restaurant!

We enjoy going into the small hall for drama. We have games on a Friday morning. Everyone wears trainers, dark coloured joggers, a plain white t-shirt and a warm sweatshirt/hoodie. We bring it in a bag labelled with our name and class.

Inside P.E. is different for every class (Click on this link to do direct to our page to check the day for your class :-

We try to remember to wear dark shorts and a plain white t-shirt.
