Hello, I'm Miss Brill the Year 1 teacher - welcome to our class page.


This year is particularly exciting as it the first year in KS1.  In Year 1 one of our focuses is to engage children to become more independent and take responsibility for their learning, for example; bringing in your book bag every day.


We want every child at Fonthill to be on FIRE which means:

  • Focused
  • Independent
  • Resilient
  • Enthusiastic  


We want every child at Fonthill to be a HERO which means:

  • Here
  • Everyday
  • Ready
  • On time

 Each term we begin a new topic which we share with Year 2 and this also links to our literacy sessions.  This might be learning about The Great Fire of London in History or Plants in science.  We want the children to develop wider interest and be engaged in their learning so we expand our topic learning to include their interests.
