Squirrel – Year 1

Year 1 – Squirrel Class

Welcome to our Year 1 class page. This year it will be led by Mrs Rose and Mrs Hopkins, with the support of Mrs Wakeling, the class teaching assistant.

Year 1 is the first year of a new curriculum for your child and it is full of exciting things! In Year 1 we continue to focus on the children’s individual needs while introducing a new approach to learning, which is play and formal based. In Year 1, we ensure that children are given a wide breadth of experiences by inviting in visitors for talks, taking children on school trips and taking part in workshops.

We look forward to working together and if you have any queries please contact us at: squirrel@stmarys.rbksch.org
