Summer Term

Our learning for the Summer term will be based around the theme of ‘colour’. In art we will be exploring how artists creatively use colour in different ways. We will be exploring a range of exciting texts, in English, such as: The Rainbow Fish; The Tin  Garden; and The Day the Crayons Quit. These texts have been chosen not only for the exciting stories that they tell but for the beautiful illustrations within them.

In Maths, we will be looking at addition, subtraction, telling the time (to o’clock and half-past), length and capacity. When adding and subtracting I am placing a lot of emphasis on the children knowing their number bonds, therefore, it is imperative that regular practise of these at home occurs.

In June, the children will undertake the Phonics Screening Test. At the end of the Spring Term I sent a phonics pack home with your child. Please look after these packs and ensure the contents stay in the plastic wallets. The practise words inside the pack are examples of the style of words that will be found in the test; therefore, any extra practise at home will benefit your child. The targets sent home at the end of the Spring-Term indicated any phonics sounds that your child was finding particularly difficult, please support your child in learning these.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for supporting your child with the recent ‘Do What you Like’ home-learning task, their art pieces are absolutely stunning! Mrs Hartwright has managed to display all the pieces of art in the Year One classroom, so please feel free to come in and have a look at the wonderful variety of art-work.
