Welcome to Wagtails Class!

Wagtails is our Key Stage 1 class for children in Year 1. Wagtails Class is taught by Mrs Gormley.

We enjoy a creative approach to our learning where all of the children’s needs are catered for.

In Wagtails class we begin to develop the skill of working independently and children are encouraged to find things out for themselves and to challenge and extend their ideas.

The children learn through a range of hands on, practical tasks as well as more formal written activities. We link our learning objectives to our high quality termly themes and the children immerse themselves in their learning.

Some important information:

Homework is sent home in the children’s learning logs on Friday. It is due back into school the following Wednesday. To view the Year 1 homework grid, please click here:
