Christian Value



In year 1, our class Christian value is friendship. Throughout year 1, we focus on how to be a good friend and the importance of good friends in our lives. Together we understand that we should listen to our friends, play kindly with them and help them when they need us.



A friend is someone we turn to,
when our spirits need a lift.
A friend is someone we treasure,
for our friendship is a gift.
A friend is someone who fills our lives,
with beauty, joy and grace.
And make the world we live in,

a better and happier place.


' the instrument by which God reveals to each the beauties of others .'

- C. S Lewis


'A friend is one of the nicest things you can have and one of the best things you can be'

- A. A Milne (Winnie The Pooh)



Welcome to Year 1


Class Teacher: Miss Pickford


Class Assistants: Ms Tyrrell, Miss Howard and Miss Burns


We would like to welcome you to our Year 1 page and congratulate the children on making such a smooth transition from Reception into Year 1. The children have settled into their class and new routines really well and we are so pleased to see their enthusiasm for learning and their kind and helpful attitudes. 


Year 1 begins the children's journey into Key Stage One, so it's a very important year!  We do lots of creative and hands-on learning throughout the curriculum.


Sharing responsibility and working as a team is also a big focus in Year 1, both in class and across the school. We also work together to become more independent and responsible for our own learning and development as individuals.


If you are interested in finding out about more of what we do in year 1, please explore the Year 1 HAST document below.
