I hope that you have all enjoyed the Easter break with your children, despite the cold weather. Hopefully spring has finally arrived and the warmer weather will stay with us for a while! We have a very busy term ahead in class 1 as the year 2’s prepare for their end of key stage SATS, year 1 children will be preparing for their phonics screening check and during the second half term the new EYFS starters for September will be visiting! Outlined below is a summary of the learning that will be taking place in class one between now and the end of term.
Our topic for this term is “She Sells Sea Shells on the Sea shore. “ During the first half term the children will be learning about sea and sea life and during the second half term their learning will focus on the seaside. In English the children will develop their writing skills through guided writing based on texts about the sea and sea creatures. During these guided writing sessions they will write stories, recounts and non- chronological reports. They will listen to and read poems and begin to make a collection of their favourite poems. In addition to this the children will have daily phonics, guided reading and comprehension activities, develop their grammar and dictionary skills and practise their handwriting.
In maths the children will practise counting, ordering numbers and estimating. They will further develop their understanding and skills in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. They will have opportunities to measure and weigh, sort and classify 2d and 3d shapes according to their properties, read and write the time, work out fractions of shapes and numbers and collect and record data in a variety of ways.
