Amazing Adventures!

Outdoor learning

We have really been enjoying our outdoor learning sessions at MERL. We have had so much fun searching for fairies and making meals for fairies. We also enjoyed giving a tree a face, made of clay and then a voice.

The Queens Jubilee!

We have enjoyed learning about the queen in preparation for the Jubilee. We created amazing, colourful crowns for our whole school Jubilee celebration. The whole school took part in a dance and sang the national anthem. We then sat down and enjoyed some yummy treats we had made. 

Rushall Farm Trip

We had a wonderful trip to Rushall Farm and the 5 a day market garden. We went on a tractor and trailer around the farm and spotted different animals. We were able to get up close to the chickens and feed them, which was really exciting. At the market garden we planted seeds, dug for worms and created flower pictures looking for 10 different colours. WE also really enjoyed our coach ride to and from the farm. What a fantastic day out! 


In English, we are looking at the story Hello Lighthouse by Sophie Blackall. 

Autumn term in English

In English, we have created an amazing story based on Six Dinner Sid. Once we finished our stories, we practiced reading them out loud and added actions. We then went to Year 6 and read our stories out loud to them. Year 6 were so happy to hear our wonderful stories.


We had lots of fun cooking our harvest pinwheels and our fruit faces. We had to select different food to represent our different features. We also had to use a knife to chop up the fruit ourselves. Have a look at the fruit faces below, can you spot your child?


During gymnastics, we have been learning how to move in different ways. We have learnt different ways to jump off a bench and also different ways to roll.

Here are some links to songs we have enjoyed looking at in Year 1.
