Year 1 - Squirrels and Frogs

Summer 2019

Welcome back! We trust you all had lots of Easter fun and are looking forward to a new term together.

 

Maths

In Maths, we are looking at place value with numbers to 100 as well as multiplying and dividing numbers. We will also be consolidating our knowledge on time and measurement. Towards the end of the term, we will be looking at fractions and money.

 

English

We will be reading Aesop’s Fables this term and will be focusing on extending our sentences by using conjunctions. We will also be looking at some non-fiction texts to deepen our understanding of the topic, ‘Animal Kingdom.’ We will also continue to develop our Phonics knowledge and apply this to our writing.

 

Topic

This term will be finding out about the Animal Kingdom as well as studying Fairytales with a twist.

 

Science

This term we will be learning about Animals and Plants. We will be linking both of these to our topic work.

 

PE lessons

As the weather improves we will be going outside during some lessons so please ensure the children have tracksuit bottoms and tops.

Frogs: Monday and Wednesday

Squirrels: Wednesday and Thursdays.

 

Homework

Literacy and Maths homework will now be online.  The homework will be an appropriate level to their learning and will need to be completed. 

Specific Maths homework linked to their learning will be released each Wednesday and the children will have one week to complete it.

We would like the children to read one level on Reading Eggs each week and complete the spelling tasks.

In Year 1, we will still be using the Reading Journals and sending the children home with reading books.

 

We look forward to working with you throughout the year.

Mrs Blanking, Mrs Monkhouse and Miss Wade
