Year 1 - Sapphire
We hope you have had a lovely time over the summer holidays and feel ready for the return to school. We can’t wait to welcome the children into Year 1 and we are sure that they will settle into Sapphire Class really quickly.
Our aim in Sapphire class, is to ensure that the children experience a smooth transition from the Early Years Foundation Stage to Key Stage One. The Year 1 curriculum builds upon and extends the experiences and learning characteristics that children have had in Emerald Class. Learning through play will continue to be an important part of the school day but with increasing challenge and the children will gradually be eased into more formalised learning when they are ready.
Our first topic is called ‘I’ll Huff and I’ll Puff...’ and this will be based on the story of The Three Little Pigs.
We look forward to getting to know you!
Mrs Osborne and Mrs Foster-Bazin
