Year 1 – Curriculum (Teacher Mr Bradley)

Welcome to Year 1.

I’m Mr. Bradley and I’m the teacher in Year 1. Having already met most of you, Mrs. Lawrence and myself can’t wait to see you in September and hear about your adventures over the summer holidays.

As well as our maths and literacy work, throughout the year we have some great themes to delve into, some of these being ‘People that help us’, ‘Building a home’ and ‘Under and Over the Sea’. Within our ‘Changes’ theme we’ll be looking at the Seasons and the changes they bring, as well as comparing the weather, both in the U.K. and across the world! We will also look at how things change for us, especially moving up to Year 1.

We will also have Coach Dave taking us to develop our PE skills with a range of fantastic activities and Mrs. Court with her infectious enthusiasm for our music sessions.
