Teacher: Miss G Murfitt

Additional Adults: Mrs L Perkins, Mr L Jenkins, Mrs T Clarke


17-18 Timetable

Welcome to Year 1!

Our topic this Spring term is:

Bright Lights, Big City!



Our topic is all about ... London!

We are also going to be learning about the Great Fire of London; what happened and how it has impacted our lives today. We shall be identifying different materials in Science and preparing to make our own Tudor houses... ready to burn in our own Great Fire of London re-enactment!

In Art we will be making city-scape and landscape pictures and looking at famous examples. And slightly closer to home in Geography; focusing on our local area and comparing it with London; learning about the differences between large cities and smaller towns.


We have got so many fantastic and exciting things planned; it’s going to be a wonderful new term! 



Useful Information

Morning drop-off expectations


Please ensure that you say goodbye to your child before they come in to the classroom in the morning. We are trying to foster the children's growing independence so they are expected to enter the classroom by themselves, hang up their coat and place their snack and drink in the appropriate places before beginning their Early Bird activity.

If you need to discuss anything specific with Miss Murfitt, please do come in and have a chat. If however, you would like a longer session to talk about your child’s needs, please make an appointment so we can discuss your child without feeling rushed. 


  • Daily reading is essential so please continue to do so with your child smiley
  • Spellings are given out every Friday. They feature sounds that your child has been learning in their Phonics sessions. The children are tested the following Friday.
  • My Way Homework is our creative homework where your child can express their learning in any way that they like. My Way homework is set once a term and is linked to the children's upcoming topic. They can paint, make something, write a story- anything they like!

Things we need

  • It is very important that your child has a suitable indoor and outdoor P.E. kit with trainers. P.E. kit should be t-shirt, shorts and plimsolls/pumps. Even though we have set days for P.E. these can often change at short notice and therefore it is best to leave P.E. kit in school throughout the week and take it home at weekends to be washed.
  • Please ensure that your all of your child’s clothing is clearly labelled with their name so that items of clothing can always be given back.
  • Please ensure that your child brings their book bag with reading books and reading records into school every day.
