Year 1

Summer Term 2019


Welcome to the Summer Term!


We will start our Science learning this term on plants. We will be looking closely at the different parts of a plant and finding out how they develop over time and we will make full use of our school garden.  We will also continue to look at seasonal changes, which will also involve looking at the different weather patterns we experience during each season.


Our Topic this term is ‘Where in the World…?’ and we will study our home town and make comparisons to our sister school in Nabalongo. We will start our topic with a walk around the local area and explore not only our current environment but link it with our local history.

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 continue to write formal and informal letters linked to these stories. With the weather to inspire us and linked to our Science we will also write poetry.


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 be developing our understanding of the faith of Islam and will also continue to look at our own and others identities and think about what it means to belong to a faith.


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 follow us on Twitter (if you aren't yet doing so please contact the office) as this will give you excellent insight into all of the learning that 1 Earth and the rest of the school do.


Kind Regards,


Mrs Pryke
