Mr Chris Wightman

Welcome to West Vale Primary School website

Class 1

The teacher in class 1 is Miss McLaren and the teaching assistant is Miss Betts

Year 1 is the first year in Key Stage 1. We follow the National Curriculum and provide a safe, colourful and caring environment for our children.

Some of the topics that we cover in Year 1 are the first man on the moon, Africa, hot and cold areas of the world, plants and animals.

In Year 1 phonics plays an important part in our weekly activities as the children are tested on their phonics skills and knowledge towards the end of the year. We follow the letters and sounds scheme along with the actions from jolly phonics.
