Welcome to Year One
Welcome to the Year One page.
Here we aim to share useful information that you can refer back to, we also want to celebrate and share the children’s learning with you.
What is happening and when?
- Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. Your child should come to school dressed in their PE kits on these days.
- Spellings are uploaded to Seesaw and are tested every Friday.

Black History Month
Lois Mailou Jones
As part of Black History Month, Year 1 learnt about Lois Mailou Jones who was an inspirational artist, teacher and role model whose work was influenced by Africa and the Caribbean. Despite racial and gender prejudices she achieved success and became the first African American artist to have a solo exhibition at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. The children created masks inspired by Lois Mailou Jones’ work.
