We love to learn in year 1! We encourage the children to develop their independence and learn to be a good learner. To help their transition from the Foundation Stage, the children support their learning in the provision areas of the classroom. They also complete daily adult led teaching activities to ensure they receive a broad and balanced curriculum. This page contains useful information about our exciting curriculum and showcases our learning journey.
