Welcome To Year 1
I am Year 1’s class teacher, Mr Harrison. In Year 1 you may also meet Mrs Greener and Miss Robson who are Teaching Assistants working in Year 1.
In Year 1 children begin learning under the national curriculum and can expect a slightly more formal school day. This still includes lots of practical learning and play, as well as some special golden time for choosing activities during part of Friday afternoon. In Year 1 children are taught through topics, with a new topic each half term. Some of our topics are: Grand Designs; The Magic Toyshop; Funny Bones; Where the Wild Things are; Wonderful Wylam and Animal Magic. We also go on visits to a wide variety of places, such as Northern Stage, The Baltic Art Gallery, Alnwick Gardens and Beamish Open Air Museum.
Children can expect to learn a lot in Year 1, and hopefully have lots of fun too!
Mr Harrison, Year 1 Class Teacher
