Unicorn Class - Year 1


Welcome to our Year 1 webpage. In our class we enjoy learning through our play both inside and outside the classroom. We encourage an active, hands-on approach to learning including construction, creative role play, games, puzzles, Computing and Forest School to support our learning. All our staff are committed to nurturing and caring for each child and ensuring that they reach their full potential. We 'Achieve, Aspire and Care for one another!'

On this page you will find useful information including a timetable, newsletters and overviews of our topics as well as useful websites and photos of our activities.

At this time we know your children might be spending more time online than they might usually do. It is important that we remind them about how to keep themselves safe online and what to do if there is a problem.

 Your bean seeds are growing well. Hopefully they will be ready to plant outside soon. I hope you are taking care of your seeds too. 

Your potato plants are growing well. We will keep looking after them for you until you come back to school.

 Wow! Look how much your potatoes have grown this week!



 We have harvested our potatoes. We collected 31lbs of potatoes!
