Year 1

Welcome to Year 1

Year 1 is led by Mrs Olsen (Portugal Class Teacher) alongside the Year 1 team. The Year 1 team includes Miss Horsfield (Iceland Class Teacher) and Miss Russel (Norway Class Teacher). The staff team are passionate in developing a smooth transition from the EYFS to KS1 curriculum and are supported by many creative Learning Support Assistants.  

Year 1 Curriculum

At Vigo Primary School in Year 1 the curriculum is designed to ease the children in transitioning from EYFS to KS1. During the Autumn Term, the Year 1 provision promotes child-led learning through the approach of continuous provision and play. There is an outdoor classroom shared by the Year 1 classes and children will have access to this throughout the day. We move slowly at the pupils' pace to more formal learning styles throughout Spring Term. 

Year 1 Key Information

In Year 1 the children will experience learning in many different forms and have the opportunity to partake in lots of varied and exciting lessons. Please see below for useful information regarding what to bring to school on selected days of the week:
