Welcome to Merlin!
Mrs Jones (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday)
Mrs Krasniqi (Thursday, Friday)
Welcome back to the first term of the year, we hope you had a lovely summer break.
We have really enjoyed settling into Year 1 and are looking forward to the year ahead.
To kick-start the term we have been focusing on the story 'Tiddler', the story telling fish. We have been practising sentence writing, letter sounds, counting, ordering numbers and number formation. Can you remember where Tiddler went on his adventures?
On Wednesday, we had a special visit from Mr and Mrs Vinegar, who talked to us about 'changes', focusing on moving to a new house, new school and making new friends. We had so much fun finding out about each other! We have also enjoyed a sensory walk around the school environment, playing games with the parachute and moving in different ways in PE.
Our theme this term is:
‘Bright Lights Big City’
So far we have located the seas, countries and capital cities in the United Kingdom and will be focusing on London and the Great Fire of London.
We hope you can visit our page throughout the year.
We will be keeping it updated with important information and photos of the children's learning!
Merlin enjoyed using their senses to explore Bonfire Night!
We enjoyed creating a wedding ceremony to support our learning of Christian weddings.
Welcome back to the second term of the year, we hope you had a lovely break.
We really enjoyed our topic 'Bright Lights, Big City', we learnt lots about the Great Fire of London, the landmarks in London and many Paddington stories.
This term, our new topic is 'Dinosaur Planet'. We will be learning lots about animals including dinosaurs and what life as a Palaeontologist, such as Mary Anning, may have been like.
