Welcome to Elm – 1SC!



We had a brilliant day out at Blackpool Zoo!! Click HERE to see photographs of our special  day.



We would like to welcome you to 1SC’s class page!

1SC’s teaching team includes Miss Cochrane (Class Teacher) and Mrs Taylor (Teaching Assistant). Mrs White (Teacher) joins 1SC on a Thursday and Friday afternoon. The children in 1SC enjoy a varied and exciting curriculum with lots of continuous provision and creative activities.  We work very hard to ensure that the transition from Reception to year 1 is smooth and successful.


Miss Cochrane will update this page, so make sure you check back for weekly updates smiley

All the Year 1 classes have begun the year with great enthusiasm and excitement. We would like to send out a big extended welcome to children and families that are new to Linaker. We know they will settle quickly into Linaker life!

We have been exploring our new classrooms and thinking about how we can keep safe. In addition, we have created some class rules to run alongside our Linaker 'golden rules'.

In Year 1 children love to learn...

In the first part of the Autumn term the year 1 topic is Bog Baby. Bog Baby is a fantastic story and we are sure it will capture the imagination of all the children! Please click on 'Autumn 1- Bog Baby' to find out what we have been doing during the first half term.

In the latter part of the Autumn term, leading up towards Christmas the Year 1 topic will be based around a story called Footprints in the Snow. Click on Autumn 2 to keep up to date with our learning journey.


During Spring term the Year 1 topic will be dinosaurs. Our learning will be based around a story called Tyrannosaurus Drip. To keep up to date with children's learning throughout this topic, click on Spring 1. 


Year 1 will complete a mini topic on growing as we lead up to Easter. We will be focussing on minibeasts and plants. The focus text for Spring term 2 will be 'Arghhh Spider' By Lydia Monks. Keep up to date with our special learning journey this half term by clicking on Spring 2.


'Beegu' by Alexis Deacon is the final focus text. Year 1 will cover this space themed book for the last term. Click on Summer 2 to keep up to date with our learning.
