The year 1 team are pleased to be welcoming the children back to school this week! We look forward to sharing lots of exciting learning with the children throughout the year.


On this page, we will share some of the learning the children get up to during the school day with you.


Although we are having to adapt to new school guidelines, the children have continued to show resilience and have all settled into their first week in year 1 extremely well.Due to the current situation, a recovery curriculum is in place to allow children to settle into school life again giving them opportunities to reflect and build upon prior learning in order to help meet curriculum targets this year.


This month we will also be celebrating the 100 year anniversary of Welwyn Garden City where the children will have the opportunity to discover the history of their local area.
