Welcome to 1M    


Mrs Mercer, Mrs Partridge and Mrs Tabberer

PE is on Tuesday and Thursday. You will need a t shirt. shorts and pumps that are clearly labelled.


We will send home words each week with our new sounds. If you have read and spelt the words, try putting them into a silly sentence or making your own list of rhyming words. You can also use www.phonicsplay.co.uk to play games using them. Send the book back by Thursday on we will send it on Friday. Please read with your child as often as possible. Any books that they enjoy are perfect! We will send home a book linked to their current reading ability with a diary to record in. We will change this when the diary is completed.

Enchanted Forest

This topic will lead us through traditional tales, such as Little Red Riding Hood, deep into the dark, dense forest where we might find elves, fairies and goblins!

Come in through the magic door and meet the strange and wonderful people in the Enchanted Forest. We have been on a woodland walk and created some amazing magical spaces for play and learning in the classrooms. Please come in and take a look.

In Maths we are using woodland resources in multiplication. Look at Danny's array using log rings!



Paws, Claws and Whiskers

February 2017

Our class assembly was on Tuesday 14th February when we were learning about animals in our Paws, Claws and Whiskers topic. The children sang and danced and spoke out confidently. Parents and teachers were very proud!

We had freezing fun at Twycross Zoo despite the snow. The penguins were eating fish and swimming in the freezing water. The bonobos stayed in the warm. They were so funny. We even got to see Mrs Mercer's favourite...the Amur leopard.




We read Mr Tiger Goes Wild and compared the different settings of the grey, drab town where everything was the same and the green, nolsy jungle where the cool waterfall splashed into deep lagoons.

We have learned the difference between herbivores, carnivores and omnivores.

You are an omnivore and so is a pig!

January 2017

We started the topic with a fascinating visit from the veterinary nurses from Clent Hills Vets Practice. The children asked lots of questions and got to try on some of the important medical equipment they use.


We used the Learn Pads to explore different animal habitats. Did you know that lions don't live in jungles? They live in African grasslands and you can hear their roar from five miles away.

Out of This World
We have had a fantastic time making our moon buggies using cardboard boxes and moving wheels.
The topic started with weather watching and exploring the seasons. We made pin wheels and learned about Francis Beaufort and the wind speed scale. Then we had visual literacy with the film Partly Cloudy. The children made puppets and produced some excellent writing. We read The Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert and created our own leaf men with resources from the sensory garden.
Memory Box

The children enjoyed finding out about their senses and the parts of the body.

They used a range of resources to find the number bonds to 10. We really enjoyed the double sided counter shakers. They are so easy to make and show the number bonds clearly by counting how many land on each colour.

Our Values Council have been hard at work, promoting the school values and handing out certificates when they see them in action. Here our Values Councillors were so proud to see pupils co-operating.
