Year 1

     
 

Welcome to Summer term! 

We hope you have all had a lovely Easter break and are ready to learn lots this term! We are very excited to have you back and have lots of exciting things planned for you all.  

 

English

This term in English, we will be focusing on the book ‘Hermelin’ by Mini Grey. Hermelin is a noticer. He is also a finder. The occupants of Offley Street are delighted when their missing items are found, but not so happy to learn that their brilliant detective is a mouse! What will happen to Hermelin? Will his talents go unrewarded?

Children will have the opportunity to develop, practise and review their writing skills. They will predict, describe characters and have a go at writing their very own detective story! We will immerse ourselves in role play and hot seat different characters in the book. Furthermore, we will cross curricular other subjects like art and geography to extend our learning further. I am so excited to get started! 

Maths

In maths this term, we will use the first week to consolidate on number and place value. We will then continue to recap on addition and subtraction to 20 and beyond with a strong focus on subtraction. Children will use their knowledge using tens frames and part whole models to work out problem solves and reasoning. Furthermore, they will learn how to subtract not crossing ten and crossing ten; we will use number lines and numicon as a way of concrete learning. Moreover, with the sun beginning to sun once again, we will be taking our learning outside by completing lots of practical activities and using outdoor provision. 

Phonics & Reading

We will continue to teach children phonics twice a day. Children will be in ability groups and be exposed to high quality teaching using a range of rich texts to extend their phonic knowledge. Lessons will be fun and engaging including lots of hands on activities, paired work and games. 

In reading, we will listen to the children read each morning and change their books every Monday. They will take home a book for pleasure and an appropriate phonics book too. Please ensure your child brings their book bags in every day to allow us to change their books accordingly and read with the children throughout the week. Furthermore, to continue to promote the love of reading, we have a brand new reading display in which we will encourage children to read whether on Bug Club, at home or in school. They will move along the rainbow and when they arrive at the pot of gold, they will receive a special prize from the special prize box!

 Please continue to read with your children at home and log on to their Bug Club page 🙂  

Theme

This term, our theme question is ‘Can you travel the world in 80 days?’. Here, there will be a big Geography focus in which we will look at maps, atlases, our own locality and an area in a contrasting non- European country. We will learn about explorers like Christopher Columbus and  Laurence Aldersey compiling fact files and an information plaque to inform others of their voyages and quests! Furthermore, we will take a look at how art is different across the world and learn about how Aboriginal Australians created their own work. Children will have the opportunity to create some Aboriginal art work, and create weaving using paper and different materials.          

  Important information 

* Our PE day this term is on Monday so please make sure your child comes dressed in their PE kits.

* Please make sure your child has their book bags and a water bottle in school each day. Water bottles can be kept in school or taken home each day. 

Our fantastic online reading resource, Bug Club, is made available for the children to read quality books throughout the week. Your child has their own login with their username and password so they can access this at home too.

 
 
 
*NO TOYS please in school. This is a regular occurrence and toys end up getting lost so please make sure children are keeping toys however big or small at home, Thank you!
