Year 1 – Merlins
Welcome to Merlins Class!
Teachers - Mrs Smith and Miss Buffery
Teaching Assistant - Mrs. Fortsch
During Year 1, our pupils will be exploring ideas, discovering different ways to learn, and will be enjoying a variety of fantastic and new experiences. We will endeavour to instil a love of learning in each and every one of the children in Year 1, and to inspire children’s imagination using our terrific topics! We use a cross-curricular approach, ensuring that their learning is meaningful, effective and most of all fun!
During Year 1, we will work hard together to create a positive learning environment where children can be the best that they can be and reach their full potential!
Weekly homework of grammar, punctuation and spellings is set on Fridays and due in by the following Wednesday. Children are encouraged to read in Year 1 and the scheme and phonic books are changed regularly.
Our topics this term are “To Infinity and Beyond”: and “On a Starry Night”. Our literacy is closely linked to our topics. This term we have stories by Oliver Jeffers including “A Way Back Home” and “Lost and Found”.
This term we have a whole school topic based on 'Woodlands'. We will be focusing on our local area and how it has changed over time.
