Ribble Drive Community Primary School

Be the best you can be

Year 1

Hello and welcome to Year 1.


During this year, we will be exploring ideas, discovering different ways to learn and enjoying a variety of fantastic and new experiences. We will endeavour to instil a love of learning in each and every one of the pupils, inspire children’s imaginations whilst creating a positive learning environment where pupils can be the best they can be.


Our first topic is War and Remembrance where we will learn about the First World War and Remembrance Day. The children will also find out about Walter Tull, a significant individual in British history who was the first black British Army officer and we will visit a local war memorial. For Science, we will look at Materials and learn how to identify and name everyday materials whilst having the opportunity to explore the properties too. In Maths, we will begin by focusing on place value and start to look at addition and subtraction within 10.


We can’t wait to see you in September.

Miss Bolton, Mrs Pearson and Miss Blanchon
