“You must never feel badly about making mistakes ... as long as you take the trouble to learn from them. For you often learn more by being wrong for the right reasons than you do by being right for the wrong reasons.” ―
Norton Juster, The Phantom Tollbooth

Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

Hello and welcome to Year 1 at Parkfield Community School. Our teaching team consists of Mrs Bather, Miss Mehta, Miss Maryeam, Mrs Drysdale, Miss Naz, Mrs Malik and Mrs Cornforth.

In Year 1 the children learn through a variety of play based, practical and written activities. To help with the transition from Reception to Year 1 at the start of the autumn term, we teach through a continuous, provision programme, this consists of a mix of indoor and outdoor based activities linked to our curriculum themes. As the term progresses, the children move to a more structured, classroom approach. Our curriculum topics include significant figures, weather, toys, the 4 nations, a local study of the area and seaside holidays.

If you have any questions, please speak to the class teacher. We look forward to working with you this year.
