Year One

Welcome to our year one page.

Here you will find lots of information about the year one curriculum, learning and events. 


Who is who? 


Year one is split into two classes



Class Teacher: Miss Tucker Class Teacher: Miss Potts
Teaching Assistant: Miss Valente Teaching Assistants: Miss Amson, Mrs Philips(am), Mrs Machin(pm)


We also are very lucky to be taught music by Mrs Collett on a Thursday morning.


On a Monday, we have lessons with our HLTA's Mrs Palin, and Miss Friesner, who cover the class teacher's PPA time. This will alternate between morning and afternoon throughout the year. 



PE will usually be taught on a Wednesday for Y1P and Thursday for Y1T.

However please can we ask that PE kits are in school every day, as we may need to change the timetable during the week. 


Year 1 Topics

Autumn 1 - All about me  

We look at everything about us, including our birthdays, family trees, where we live and what makes us special.


Autumn 2 - Celebrations

We compare Christian and Jewish celebrations. We also look at other traditional British celebrations such as Bonfire Night and Remembrance Sunday.


Spring 1 - Toys

We compare our own toys to those from the past. We look at Toy Story to do some descriptive writing and we learn how Lego was invented.


Spring 2 - Fairy Tales

We look at lots of traditional tales and what makes them fictional. We use our drama skills to re-enact our favourite and create Red Riding Hood artwork.


Summer 1 - Growing

We grow our own beanstalks and learn about how to keep plants alive. We also look at how animals and humans grow and do some measuring.


Summer 2 - Under the sea

We learn the names of the 5 oceans and discover what is in them with help from Sir David Attenborough's 'Blue Planet'. We look at Australia's Coral Reef and non-fiction books about the sea.

Trips, Visitors and Dressing up

Wistaston Walk - We take a walk around our local village to create maps in Geography.


Attingham Park - We compare this grand home from the past to poor homes from this time in History.


 Lego Land - We learn about the invention of Lego.


Nantwich Museum - Visitors come to show use toys from the past.


Toy dressing up day


Church Visit - We visit Reverend Mike at S.t Mary's Church to look at the features of the building. He then came into school to tell us about his job.
