Year 1 Zone

Welcome to the Year 1 Home Page!

We want our Year 1 children to be excited by learning and to continue to develop their understanding through practical experiences. They will learn to work independently and to take responsibility for their own possessions and those of the class.

In the autumn term, our topic is 'Ourselves'. During this topic we find out about our local area and look at some of the key features of Thornton Heath. It includes exciting trips to the library and Crystal Palace football stadium which the children love!

In the spring term, our topic is 'Toy Story' where we look at toys from the past and how toys have changed. In this term we read lots of fairy stories and traditional tales and we are invited to Cinderella's wedding to Prince Charming!

Our topic for summer is 'Africa' and we go to the Horniman Museum to take part in African workshops and look at their fantastic African masks and musical instruments. The children take part in African dance sessions.


We look forward to working with you to support your children's learning in Year 1.
