Welcome to Year 1 Class!
Summer Term 2018
Welcome to the Summer Term!
During the first half of this term we will be continuing our Science learning on plants. We will be planting a range of plants and caring for them as they grow. We will also be looking closely at the different parts of a plant and finding out how they develop over time.
After half term, we will be looking at seasonal changes, which will involve looking at the different weather patterns we experience during each season.
Our Topic this term is ‘Exploring the World’. We will be studying our home town and making comparisons to Nabalongo. The children will familiarise themselves with their local environment and use this to write letters to the children at Nabolongo primary school. We will also be looking at the seven continents and the four countries that make up the UK.
In English, we will be looking at a range of stories from across the globe and writing our own versions of the stories we study. We will also write poems linked to these stories.
In Maths, we will be continuing to develop our number fluency to 100. We will also be looking at counting in 2s, 5s & 10s and then moving onto multiplication and division. The children will be looking at finding fractions of shapes and amounts and telling the time to o’clock and half past.
In RE, we will continue to look at our own and others identities and think about what it means to belong to a faith. We will also be developing our understanding of the importance of the ‘holy books’ associated with different faiths and some of the stories they include that teach us.
We are looking forward to our school visit to Hatfield Forest and additional communication will be sent to parents’ prior this trip.
This is another action packed term and we’re looking forward to all the learning that the children will be doing.
If you have any queries or questions please do not hesitate to catch me briefly after school, or make an appointment via the office.
Please do keep checking back for updates, and follow us on Twitter if you aren't yet doing so - this will give you an excellent insight to all of the learning that 1 Earth and the rest of the school get up to.
