PE Day: Wednesday

Children should come into school wearing their PE kit on this day


Mrs Gillespie delivers learning to build on EYFS practice to secure the key skills for later learning.  Year 1 is an important and exciting time in a child's learning journey. We inspire them with learning experiences linked to inspiring books and stories. It is in Year 1 where children's reading is developed to help them become more independent.  Phonics lessons using the Read Write Ink approach are taught everyday in small groups and we encourage parents to join in the fun with homework activities.  Throughout the year, children escape the classroom and enjoy learning outside in our learning environments.  They also enjoy a wide variety of trips within the local community and further afield.  Our carefully selected topics link learning as children enjoy all aspects of the All Saints creative curriculum.
