Welcome to Team Fir

Meet the staff

Mrs Fowler                      Mrs Atkinson                      Mrs Rennie

In Year One, we will build upon the skills’ your child has learned in Early Years by delivering a wide range of memorable and stimulating opportunities through a creative curriculum..  

Your child will be learning through topics this year, which makes lessons relevant and exciting. They will learn English through all sorts of wonderful stories and they will also act out stories that may be familiar to you at home. They will plan and write their own wonderful creative stories, design posters and leaflets. They will learn to write in sentences and to use exciting language — all while improving their handwriting.. I’m hoping at our first parent evening, you will be amazed at their development!


There are a wide range of topics we will cover in Year 1 and your child will undoubtedly have their personal favourites.

Some of the Year 1 activities include:

  • Experiments (science) product design (DT)
  • Learning the history of things (history) and about the local area we live in (geography)
  • Dancing, playing games and using gym apparatus (PE)
  • Painting, drawing and more creative processes (art)

We also develop their social skills and empathy for each other during RE and circle times. Year 1 is an important year for your child’s increasing independence. The days are so varied and busy, the hours just fly by!
