Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

The transition from Reception to Year 1 can be daunting for many children, but at St John’s we ensure all our children are well prepared for the changes so they can embrace their learning both confidently and positively. Our class have settled in fantastically well and we will update this page regularly to show some of the exciting things we do each week.


The focus in Year 1 is on developing and working towards mastering the basic skills of reading, writing and maths. Our mornings are spent covering the core areas of phonics, maths and English. Afternoons enable the children to embed these essential skills through engaging with the wider curriculum areas of science, geography, history, R.E, music, design and technology, art and P.E. Each term we will focus on a ‘theme’. Our first theme is ‘Farm to Fork’ which is detailed in the long term planner (LTP) linked below. We will be learning about where food comes from,how it is produced, how it gets from fields/ factories to our shops and what ‘harvest’ means. 


Our teachers are Mrs Beresford and Mrs Weatherburn (Thursdays), with the support of Mrs Stott and Mrs Khan.
