Welcome Message:

Welcome to Year 1! We hope you had a lovely Winter break. We are looking forward to learning all about planting and growing. 


Our Topic: 


The Potting Shed

This unit will incorporate the concepts of growing by getting the pupils to become plant hunters who go on an exciting journey discovering both real and fantasy plants. The children will learn all about the plant hunter George Forrest and will get the chance to grow their own plants in the classroom.


(For more details see Curriculum Map below)

Earrings may not be worn for PE, so please make sure you can take them out yourself, or that you leave them at home on PE days.
