Year 1

Summer term is going to be full of excitement in a variety of ways, as our topic this term is ’Carnival of the Animals’ which will be taught through a Creative Curriculum. We began with our Launch Day on Thursday 19th April, with our trip to Peak Wildlife Park. It was a busy, fun filled day, and we certainly had the weather for it!

The children will learn in cross-curricular lessons which will cover all areas of the National Curriculum.

Here is a taster of just some of the fun we will be having!
