Welcome to the Summer Term in Y1!
Traditional Tales and 'I do like to be beside the seaside'.
This term we are going to be finding out about 'Traditional Tales'. In Geography, we will be looking at weather and patterns. In Art, we will be exploring sculptures and creating our own. In Science we will be looking at plants and what they need to grow and survive. During our Computing sessions, we are going to be making an audiobook of our favourite traditional tales.
This term the children will be developing their knowledge of numbers to 100. They will be learning to recognise, order and identify missing numbers in order to support their knowledge of place value. We will continue to develop the children's ability to understand addition, subtraction, division and multiplication using one and two digit numbers. We will spend some time exploring money as well as weight and volume.
The children will be continuing with their daily phonics session in order to develop their knowledge and understanding of set 2 and set 3 sounds. They will be exploring RWI books in order to develop their early reading skills. They will be developing their understanding and ability to read real and alien words in order to prepare them for the Phonics Screening Test in June. In writing, we will be using 'Traditional Tales' as the basis for our Creative Writing sessions. We will be looking at character descriptions and three part stories. The children will also take part in grammar sessions to develop their understanding of spelling, punctuation and grammar.
