Year 1 2022 - 2023

Welcome to Year 1

You can find the KS1 blog here. It features stories and photos from our exciting learning journey together.

Mrs Sharman and Miss Bailey would like to welcome all the children back after a very well-earned break!  We hope you all managed to have a wonderful Christmas with your families, and are ready to do some fun learning in the new year!  

This half term our topic is called Mary Anning and Fossils.  Have you ever heard of Mary Anning? The children will be learning all about the wonderful discoveries she made whilst she was alive and the importance of her work for the scientific community.   
In Science, we will continue to observe the weather and seasons by visiting the secret garden. You can help your child by talking about what they notice about the changes in seasons.  This half  term Cool Chloe will help us to learn about everyday materials, what they are used for and how we can group them according to their properties.  We will also be carrying out a rather exciting experiment involving everyday items which are often thrown away.  

In Art, the children will be learning how to use a variety of different pencil skills in order to recreate light and shade in their drawings.  They will also make their own fossils using plaster of paris.   

If you have any questions for either Mrs Roach or Mrs Smith, please email school at   enquiries@marlcliffe.sheffield.sch.uk  

Thank you for your support

Mrs Sharman and MIss Bailey
