Concept Planning around our Values

Welcome to Avon 1 and Mere 1


The children’s journey in to Key Stage One begins in Year 1.  We do lots of hands on learning through our inspiring and engaging curriculum.


Our children develop their problem solving skills in Mathematics and broaden their understanding of the world through topic work, educational visits and by exploring key texts. This enables children to expand their vocabulary and develop their oracy and communication skills.


Throughout the year, children learn about diversity and respect through our key concepts of: BELONGING, RESPECT, CARE, TRUST and LOVE, which are built in to all areas of learning.
