Welcome back to the Summer Term! This half term we have many exciting, interesting things planned.

In English, we are reading and writing about Traditional Tales, focusing on Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs. We will be using lots of drama to retell these stories and then writing retells and exploring characters and their motives. We will be continuing to practise writing interesting sentences with good punctuation (capital letters, full stops and finger spaces) as well as using conjunctions, adjectives and interesting sentence openers.  This half term ends with Class Assemblies and Jubilee Day.

In science, we are learning how to classify animals into the five key animal groups (Reptiles, Fish, Amphibians, Mammals and Birds) and the key features of each classification category. This work will be supported by observing the animals in real life on our trip to Hobble-down Farm.

In maths, we will be consolidating and mastering the children’s understanding of number facts and bonds within 20 as well as revisiting addition and subtraction strategies. They will also be revisiting 2D and 3D shapes. They will continue to count in 2s, 5,s and 10s, and we will learn how to describe objects in terms of their position and direction.

In geography, we will be learning about the weather in our local area and the UK. We will be learning the weather symbols and what types of weather we tend to have in each season. We will be learning about how weather is measured in a weather station.

As part of our PSHE and circle time sessions, our focus will be on the value of honesty, and in RE we are learning about Hinduism.

We greatly appreciate all of your ongoing support, thank you.

The Year 1 Team.
