Welcome to Year 1! We hope you had a lovely Summer break. We are looking forward to learning all about buildings and materials.

Children will have the opportunity to express their individuality, explore their identity, develop their talents and understand their place in the world. Key questions that will be explored include: Who Am I? Where did my name come from? What am I Like? What I might be good at? What is special about me and where I live?
