Introduction

Welcome to Year 1

Hello everyone, I am the Year 1 teacher Mr Daly-Brand  

In Year 1 children begin learning under the national curriculum and can expect a slightly more formal school day. This still includes lots of practical learning and play.

In Year 1 children are taught through topics, with a new topic each half term. Some of our topics are: Grand Designs; The Magic Toyshop; Funny Bones; Where the Wild Things Are; Wonderful Wylam and Animal Magic. We also go on visits to a wide variety of places, such as Northern Stage, Alnwick Gardens, Tom & Joe's Garden Center and Beamish Open Air Museum.

Children can expect to learn a lot in Year 1, and I insist that they all have lots of fun!
