Welcome to Year 1!

Our aim is to ensure that the children experience a smooth transition from the Foundation Stage to Key Stage 1. The Year 1 curriculum builds upon and extends the experiences that children have had in Reception. Learning through play will continue to be an important part of the school day. The children will gradually be eased into more formal learning as the year progresses, so that they remain motivated, enthused and eager learners.

On Friday 9th June, the whole school enjoyed a special morning, celebrating and learning about Christian weddings. We held a mock wedding at St Gregory’s church where Danielle and Thomas played the part of the bride and groom, and a girl and boy from every class played the parts of bridesmaids and ushers. A big thank you to Rev Jeremy Trew at St Gregory’s Church who led the service and to Just Flowers of Seaton who very generously donated the flowers. We had a great time dressing up, don’t the children scrub up well!

On Tuesday, Year 1 and Year 6 got together to do some arts and crafts on the theme of bats following an assembly from the Devon Greater Horseshoe Bat Project. The children worked really well as a team and have made many different bat models, including some from pom-poms, tubes, split-pins and origami. Both year groups seemed to enjoy the afternoon and got a lot out of it.

On Friday, Year 1 took a trip to Seaton Wetlands. All the children took part in pond dipping, a mini beast hunt and completed a clay model using plants and flowers. We all had a very enjoyable day in the lovely weather!
